Tell a Story Day

What is your favorite story to tell? Is it from your favorite book, or is it from your imagination? You are never too old to tell a story because that is what keeps others interested and engaged. The more wild the story, the more entertaining it is. You will want to do that on Tell a Story Day.

April 27th urges everyone to tell a story because it is Tell a Story Day. You can tell any story you would like, whether you gather friends around to read a book or tell a story based on your imagination – or a true tale of something you overcame or something funny or embarrassing that happened to you (that you can laugh about now). You can also tell a story about something that happened during your childhood that stuck out. Therefore, storytelling is not always fictional.

You can do to entertain children too by telling them stories that keep them engaged. Part of kindergarten or the early grades of elementary school consists of storytelling. That is why the teacher will ask the young students to gather around them and listen to them as they read a story or tell one that can be relatable to the kids.

Kids are also very good at telling stories that come from their imagination. These stories might be true but are embellished, or they may be completely fictional. The best thing to do is listen to these kids tell stories because their creativity strengthens if they exercise their imagination. That will help them throughout life as creativity is what you need for solving problems.

The History Of Tell A Story Day

Storytelling has been around since ancient times, and Tell A Story Day has been around since 2009, which an entrepreneur, George Rafeedle, established. His purpose for establishing the day was because he knew as an entrepreneur that storytelling is a powerful way to help engage with others and motivate them to do well. That is because when you tell a compelling story, you will attract listeners, and they are likely to take action if the story you tell them inspires them. Since he knew that storytelling could be so motivating and powerful, he wanted to create a day surrounding telling tales.
