When our own life is a complete novel with unknown number of pages, then it's obvious that stories will influence our personality and our lifestyle. Since centuries it has been known as a significant part of wisdom, personality development, healing, and spiritual growth.
Considering the importance of story-telling to child development, psychologists have quoted immense ways it has supported the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of a child. Since time immemorial it has been recognized as a vehicle to shape a child's life. It is one of the most easiest and convenient ways to inculcate values and virtues within a child. One example is the story of the tortoise and the hare. Children always to support the cute little hare. The end of the story declaring that the tortoise has won makes them sad. Still the moral of the story is inserted in their growing mind in the most natural way. We do not find any reason to advise them to be slow and to be steady at the same time. They learn that they should be honest to their task and that they should stick to their task. In this story two known animals have been used who are examples of great contrast in respect of their movement. The story contains softness even in its twists and turns. Nothing happens under the sun as the tortoise moves slowly and as the hare takes some rest.
Morality stories penetrate into the character of the kids. It is not important to order them 'do this' and 'do not do that' with a voice of an authority. They learn to obey the seniors and the importance of being industrious. We want to teach them 'loyalty' 'punctuality' and at times we get exhausted as the result is not achieved. Morality stories have the inherent strength to assist the children identifying what is right and what is wrong or what one should do and what one should not.
