Young children live through their imaginations, which makes storytelling so deeply nourishing for their hearts and souls. Fairy tales and stories captivate young children because these stories mirror the developmental struggles of children transitioning through the stages of early childhood. Participants will travel around the world exploring the magic of storytelling.
