Short stories for kids

Short stories for kids

Most kids love short stories. They love to hear them, read them and even make them up themselves. But why are stories so important for kids?

For one, stories help kids make sense of the world around them. They learn about cause and effect, how to deal with emotions and how to resolve conflicts. All of these are important life skills that they will need as they grow up.

Stories also help to develop a childs imagination. As they picture the characters and events in their mind, they are building important cognitive skills.

And finally, they’re just plain fun! They are a great way for kids to escape into another world, to laugh and to feel happy.

So go ahead and encourage your child to read, listen to and tell stories. Its good for their mind, body and soul!
