Stories generally attract and interest all age groups of children provided they get a chance to participate actively and understand what is happening in the story. For teachers too, it can be a tool where various developmental domains and learning outcomes can be reached. In my initial experience, the storytelling sessions with students of classes I and II were not at all successful. With lower attention spans, the children stopped actively participating after a few minutes. I learnt that the essence of the story is to keep the children connected with the different characters and their emotions rather than questioning them to assess their knowledge. Initially, I asked many questions on every page due to which the connection with the story would be interrupted and children would lose interest. When I tried telling stories with actions and voice modulation and did not ask many questions, I observed that students started listening to the stories more attentively.
