Children love stories. Li’l Stories provide you with inspiration when you need to tell a story on the spot—whether it’s at bedtime, over dinner, or while traveling.
Why Li’l Stories
Luna, our daughter, loves stories. When she was younger, we told her stories all the time. But we found it challenging to come up with something imaginative, mysterious, or fun on the spot. Thus we created Li’l Stories to make storytelling easy and fun for us.
Storytelling is a powerful learning tool and has lots of benefits for children:
- It develops communication skills, vocabulary, and an active imagination.
- It helps children understand themselves, others, and the world around them.
- It is a safe way of learning and sharing emotions and feelings
And most of all, kids love stories.
In April 2013, we ran a Kickstarter campaign to finance the first print-run. Ninety-seven backers joined us on our journey to create Li’l Stories.
What is Li’l Stories
The cards are 5” x 7” and each card has an illustration on the front and 5-10 facts on the back. We chose themes that can inspire but also trigger a memory, so one can weave both into a story.
The Awesome People card set includes Amelia Earhart, Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Beatrix Potter. The Cool Places card set includes Egyptian Pyramid, Eiffel Tower, Petra, Statue of Liberty, and Taj Mahal. The Great Animals card set includes Elephant, Lion, Monkey, Penguin, and Platypus. The Mysterious Objects card set includes Air Balloon, Bicycle, Gramophone, Steam Engine, and Telephone.
Abraham Lincoln always wore a tall hat. He carried important letters in it…the rest of the story is up to you.
