Reading Stories Promotes Storytelling

For example, talking about a story that a child has recently read is a great way to reinforce the development of reading skills and story comprehension. In addition, reading stories promotes storytelling and sparks conversation with regard to stories and books that are read by the child or by a parent. Either way, there is a multiplier effect that can be incorporated in reading and storytelling as a way to greatly enhance children’s speech and language skills. All this combined with creating a sense of excitement with regard to reading can motivate children to want to read more.
