PARENTS, KIDS AND EDUCATORS LOVE You TELL Me Stories! We liked how the emphasis was on HOW you read to your child, not necessarily WHAT you read to your child. Although content is important, the approach and presentation of the content is key. The Retell, Record and Share feature gives children the opportunity to practice their storytelling skills--an often overlooked and essential activity after reading with a child. Retelling and summarizing a story builds important skills such as recall/memory, clarity of thought and delivery, sequencing, speaking skills, vocabulary, and analysis.
