Storytelling promotes receptive language development and helps children understand rhythmic language and narrative structure. Watching these colorful tales develops comprehension skills, expands vocabulary, increases visual processing, and aids in memory recall. The manipulatives in this kit will aid in expressive language skills as the child retells the story over and over again. As children comprehend the stories and their confidence builds, they will want to read the accompanying story books independently, instilling confidence and a love of reading.
