The Power Of Stories
“Storytelling binds us together. It starts to do that when we are children, listening to stories read to us by parents and grandparents, and it continues through our lifetimes.
“Stories teach us about the world; they remind us of what it is to be the other person, and that helps us develop our sensitivity to the feelings of others.
“Above all, perhaps, stories intrigue us. We are an inquisitive species – we love to find out about the world; we love adventure; we love to learn. Stories do all that. Sit back and enjoy it.”
