Our Stories

knowonder! stories are Read-Aloud stories.

In fact, the whole Knowonder! Literacy Program is built up around this core difference.

Read-aloud stories and picture books are very different from each other. They are both needed, but they provide very different benefits. (learn more on www.knowonder.com)

Consider these key benefits of read-aloud stories:

  • Listening skills are built
  • concentration improves as children learn to sit still and focus
  • comprehension and understanding of events (cause and effect relationships) is enhanced
  • imagination is actively exercised as children imagine the scenes, characters and worlds the words create
  • vocabulary is increased as children discover new words
  • a child’s ability to guess meanings of new words grows
  • children become more confident because they know they are cared for and loved and becuase they can express their thoughts and needs
  • children are better-enabled to make friends and good relationships because their communication skills are increased
  • learning in all subjects becomes much easier because the brain is literally being wired to learn and take in new information
  • family bonds are strengthened and reinforced, creating an atmosphere of love, trust and communication in the home which will last a lifetime

While it can be said that many of these benefits come from picture books, most of them are developed much better, faster, and deeper with read-aloud stories. When you consider the sum-total of all these benefits, it’s easy to see why reading to your child every day from birth is the single-most important thing a parent can do to ensure a child’s success in life.
