Why storytelling l.jpg
Why Storytelling?

Worldwide tradition of storytelling

Storytelling is an age-old tradition that has existed since the dawn of time and in every culture. It is many things to many people. It is entertainment, a way of passing on a culture’s history, or a way of teaching to both the young and old. Storytelling is an art.

Lambe 2002
