Storytelling is a part of the learning process. Kids can express emotions through storytelling, they learn new vocabulary, and learn to listen as well. Story Stones are an interesting tool for boosting their creativity.
Story Stones can be used by parents, educators, or other adults to guide a story along. Kids ask questions, contribute to the story, make up different stories with the same characters - all the while increasing their thinking capacities. They learn to associate imagination and illustrations. Storytelling helps children visualize a story instead of waiting for a tv show to do it for them. It can help them understand acceptable and unacceptable behaviors through the good and bad characters in that story. It has, also, always been an important way of learning about roots and culture.
