Best Books for Tell a Story Day
It’s Tell a Story Day!
It’s a celebration of the art of oral story telling and can be told through fiction, nonfiction, short story, poetry, or any other kind. They may be told plainly from memory or from a book you love, or even from a newspaper or magazine. You can even create your own story from imagination.
Stories bring people closer together, and it’s an opportunity for us to learn from one another, forming closer bonds and connections. Creativity is fostered when we try to connect our past with the present.
For Charlie and I, we will likely read each other a short story from the New York Times Tiny Love Stories, our favourite column.
If you can’t think of any, here are some lovely suggestions. Since today is the day, you may want to download these onto your phone in e-book format so you get instant access.
There’s lots of free content online too, just do a quick google search for short love stories, poetry, comedy, short fiction, whatever you’re in the mood for, and you’re sure to find something there.
Or if you’re up to it, let your imagination run wild today and share from within.
Happy story telling day, from one reader to another.
