Reading books with young children is an activity enjoyed by many families. Over the years researchers from a range of disciplines have found that sharing books with young children has a range of benefits for child development, such as increasing the number of words that children understand and use, and their literacy and narrative skills later down the line.
Books are not the only way to tell stories though and the practice of oral storytelling is also prevalent around the world. In this research café, hosted by the Linguistic Diversity Collective and Creative Manchester in partnership with Manchester Museum, we will discuss the practice of oral storytelling to young children across cultures and maybe share a story or two ourselves.
