Storytelling is indeed an art. But once parents master this art, it pays to use one's imagination. In the present context cultural, this is no storytelling. Eye contact is a must with today's children. The Dr Seuss Books (USA) and Scholastic Books for kids have become very popular in the United States, mainly due to eye-catchy visuals. Repetition is particularly popular with the young. Typical of the repetitive story is the familiar Ginger Bread Man story. The hero repeats, 'Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me I am the Gingerbread man'. Today children enjoy stories which have colourful pictures and they expect the reader to have some kind of voice modulation for differnt characters. Do you read out a story to your child? Do you mimic the characters? Share with us!
