English Story Books For Kids

English Short stories for kidsEnglish Story books entertain and through this entertainment it is easier to remember things. As you teach children it is needless to say how much more they can learn if they are interested in a topic. And who wouldn’t be interested if you show them a fancy book cover? Their fantasy starts working on the spot. Their curiosity and their brain suddenly want to know everything about the book that you are holding in front of them. They begin to wonder, Who? Where? When? Why? Who else? Etc… Here we come, inquiry based learning. It will help children to understand and learn things faster and without you or them make a great effort.

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”

Albert Einstein

Story books can be used as a base of a role-play so even the shy ones are willing to participate as they have some ready-made sentences to say. Or they can be the part of the chorus and use the language without noticing it.
You can also make them use their imagination with some directed questions such as what if…? or what would…? Ask them to predict future happenings as well. So they can practice future tense and conditional.
