From the stories conveyed through cave paintings in the ancient times, to the bedtime stories we tell our children, stories are all around us. Storytelling is not just reading words aloud but is a skill and has the potential to influence children immensely in shaping their beliefs and thoughts. We have identified some great story telling sessions in Ahmedabad which you can take your children to.
