"Tell Me a Story..."

Table of Contents

It is not an uncommon occurrence for a child to leave his toys, and, bringing his picture book, ask for a story. Then - what to tell him? Young children enjoy stories with much repetition of phrases in them. It is such fun to hear how the horses go "cloppity-clop" on the pavement, and how the kitten goes "meow, meow" for its saucer of cream. They learn to watch for the places where such phrases occur, and their little faces beam as occasionally they vounteer to repeat them with the story teller. It is in this way that their vocabularies may be increased as they hear strange words again and again.
