Storytelling is the ancient art of conveying real or fictitious events in words, images, and sounds.doll

. Stories have been shared in every culture and in every land as a means of entertainment , education, preservation of culture and to instill knowledge and values. Storytelling is often considered to be a crucial aspect of humanity. Human beings have a natural ability to use verbal communication to teach, explain, and entertain, which is why storytelling is so prevalent in everyday life. Traditional storytelling differs from multi-media storytelling, in that it is experienced, and forms within the mind of the audience.
