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 us closer together, and it’s an opportunity for us to learn from one another, forming closer bonds and connections.
For Charlie and I, we'll 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 suggestions. Since today is the day, you may want to download these onto your phone in e-book format so you get instant access.
