We generally have our own collection of stories heard from somewhere or read. But, very soon we run out of stories.

Our kids love stories and while doing it - we can try to make these sessions very informative and educative for them.

How to be effective at storytelling ?



1. Pick your stories from site like http://www.bedtime.com/ or better buy a book which has collection of stories(). Books could give you an organized way to do story a day for the next year(i.e. 365 days) and not worry about the story next day.

Popular categories of books among kids -
