Stories are an important and integral part our life. For generations, stories have been passed as folklore, fables, drama, tall tales, and songs through word of mouth and written. Stories about cave men and their life can be seen on the cave walls long before humans could speak or write. They depicted their way of life through pictures in a sequence, which makes them earliest realistic non-fiction storytellers. After few centuries, when civilization used languages to speak, there were great storytellers whose only job was to narrate hero's victory in a war, in the form of an interesting story. They used all their creativity to narrate the tale of the war hero so as to bring joy or tears in the eyes of the anticipating spectators.
Even non-fiction becomes more interesting to read when there are numerous anecdotes of various short real life instances, depicted as stories. The curiosity in finding true stories here there and everywhere as an adult, must have originated as a kid. Kids love to hear stories.
For a kid, stories are a way to know new things, improve on their vocabulary and foster their imagination. Sometimes these imaginations from listening to stories as a kid get implanted in their mind and can make them do great things as an adult.
Kidz fun and Kidzfun-select applications have stories as a menu option. These applications attempt to include different fictional and non-fictional stories to foster imagination in a child. These stories attempt to provide entertainment with education. The stories in these applications are never an attempt or an intention to replace the stories that a child has fun, from listening to their parent, grandparent or an elderly person under the stars. The stories in these applications can be mere fictional story trying to depict a realistic mannerism and habitat of the animal or a non-fictional story in a fictional habitat with non-realistic mannerism. For instance all the life cycle stories of various insects and other animals come under non-fiction category but they are depicted using non-realistic speech bubbles. But other stories like 2 iguanas depict fictional stories with realistic habitat and mannerism. Some stories in the applications are narrations of what is written in other books, which can benefit a child.
The stories in these applications are used as a tool for kids and adults to enjoy, learn and inculcate an interest to explore and find things on their own. Stories always have and will interest kids. Though everyone attempts to tell stories in the digital space, stories in "Kidz Learn Applications" is a small attempt to carry this tradition forward but with a different approach and narration.
Happy Story time.
