Oral history

Storytelling (1998)

A Foundational Pillar of Literacy

Stories fill every comer of our lives. They come to us unsolicited as we overhear a conversation on the bus, and shock us as we listen to the evening news. We surround our children with stories, reading storybooks to them and encouraging them to read good literature, in the hope that they will visit-in their imagination-a world beyond ours.
