+ Human in every culture have used stories to educate, inspire, entertain, and warn the next generation. “We are the sum total of all the stories that we see and hear in our lifetimes”(Walsh, 2007).Walsh, 2007
+ According to the story from the Jewish Hassidic tradition, when the truth walks naked in the world, people turn and look away. But, when truth walks with story, he is invited into our houses and into our hearts. Human brains seem to retain material put in story form much better than a list of unrelated facts (Haven, 2007; Weaver, 1994).Haven, 2007Weaver, 1994

+ Children's literature covers many types of texts from picture books to biographies. Children's literature empowers children. It motivates thinking, enhances language, and promotes cognitive development. Children not only become involved in the story, but they connect with the characters. If children love to read, their comprehension is higher, their vocabulary is extended, and their fluency becomes more evident.
+ Instil Critical thinking into reading
+ The owner of a restaurant has a cat. The owner feeds the cat with the leftover food. Each time the owner brings a plate and walks towards the cat and bends down, the cat will meow in delight.
+ While the cat is enjoying the food, the little rat squeezes through the gap and tries to share it with the cat. The cat is busy with its food and has no time to even look at the incoming rat.
+ After the meal, the cat stretches out its front paws and meows. The rat takes a bat and invites the cat to play. The cat puts on the hat and glove and nods happily.
+ After the game, the cat purrs to show its contentment. Then, it lies down on the mat.
+ What can you see when you are on beach? I can see a crab. What can you hear when you are there? I can hear the waves.
+ Why is it good for us to feel the food before we eat it? Before we eat we can use our fingers to check the temperature of the food. This can help us prevent the food hurting our mouth.
+ Why do we need to have strong little feet when we walk along the beach? When we walk along the beach, the sandy ground can be very soft, so our strong feet prevent us from sinking.
