Most people would agree that young children and story time go together like peanut butter and jelly. Scientific studies have shown that when parents and children cuddle up together to read stories they improve their emotional bonds, reduce their stress levels and boost the child's brain development. Hearing the same story over and over again has been shown to be important for learning language and logic skills. Stories help children to understand things they do not experience in their everyday routine.
This is true for teenagers and adults as well. Stories about family and ancestors can help develop a sense of personal identity. Stories about the founding of our country can help develop a sense of national identify and patriotism. Stories with analogies can help with understanding of religious concepts like faith.
Some of the greatest stories ever told for the instruction of the listeners are the parables that Jesus Christ, the Master Teacher, gave the people as recorded in the New Testament. Everyday objects and situations familiar to the listeners were used to teach people how they should live and what they should believe.
