I love reading! Stories transport me to places I have never been to, even to places that exist only in imaginations. I enjoy traveling without having to pack my bags and prepare my passport. Books give me a temporary escape from bittersweet reality. I also get to learn about new words that I look up in the dictionary when I don’t understand. I love shopping for books, even if I have several unread titles at home. I do think that one cannot have enough books!
I wish my children could enjoy stories like I do. I read to them a selection of books from our little collection, which I wish to grow as the kids grow, too. I love reading to them stories and making my voice animated to express what the characters are feeling. Stories are great for teaching them about Jesus, about the world, about good behavior, about feelings and how to address them.
One way to make books come alive and become magical for our children is to learn the art of storytelling. I’m glad there’s a workshop for that!
The Art of Storytelling workshop by Manila Workshops and GPG Bulilit Bookstore will be held on May 10, 2014, 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Insular Life Multipurpose Hall, 12th floor Insular Life Makati Building, Ayala Avenue corner Paseo de Roxas Street, Makati City. If you are parents and want your kids to enjoy storybooks or if you are a teacher who loves telling stories to students, then sign up for the workshop here: The Art of Storytelling Workshop.
