Stories play a vital role in the growth and development of children. They are a great way to introduce new words and ideas into a child’s language. Stories have many benefits for children in their formative years as it inculcates values and also improves the child’s verbal proficiency. Parents should read a story to kids from an early age to strengthen their reading and writing skills. Reading a story to children also helps them to understand different topics about the world and everyday life. Stories teach a baby about different concepts such as numbers, letters, colours, and shapes in a fun way. They help build listening, memory, and vocabulary skills.
