Genres of Inspirational Stories: Enlighten your Childrenfrom: Maxx Family Life
Can you still remember the very first story that was imbedded in you on your treasured years of childhood? If you still don't have your own valiant memories and listening to inspirational stories are a great delight to you, whether at the dinner table or at bedtime with your kid, better grab copies of inspirational stories to be stirred by them.
There are stories that have been written for children that have roused their imagination through the pages of time that have been handed from generations to generations. Stories of adventure, brotherhood, fantasy, honor, and love have been created that inspired children's perception of life and had shaped their dreams and goals in life. Moreover, these stories have enthused the impressionable youth of values or ethics that had taught them in a more ingenious and entertaining way rather than hear boring sermons from their teachers, parents or a strict aunt.
Inspirational stories are also a good way of igniting interests in literature and book reading at a young age. But each story should be appropriate for every child's age and understanding. For instance, short and simple stories are more appropriate for younger children like toddlers and pre-schoolers. While the older ones can handle and understand the intricacies of a more compound story, such as "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie or "Alice in Wonderland" by Elizabeth Lewis.
Bible stories or stories regarding religion are a good way to teach children of their faith. Mostly it combines human compassion and adventure and teach religious values as well.
Stories of adventure can motivate children's braveness to reach their pursuits in life. Examples of adventure stories are "Moby Dick" by Herman Melville, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain, or the famed "Arabian Nights" which consists of various tales in the Islamic world during the ninth to thirteenth centuries. These types of stories will rouse the voyager within the hearts of the children.
Stories that feature different cultures are good for understanding people from different cultural backgrounds. It teaches acceptance and tolerance and a general good perception of people different from their own beliefs and traditions, especially in this time of globalization.
Stories of fantasies, also known as fairy tales, mostly excite children because of its nature of escapism. It ignites children's imaginations about other worlds, imaginary creatures, and also inspires their role-playing games. They love dreaming of fairies, unicorns, dragons, and talking animals. It mostly entertains them as Science fiction is to adults.
And then there are also stories from history. Historical anecdotes woven with creative zest of adventure or with humor that makes some historical events easy to remember. It is also a great way to introduce the usual boring History subjects in their future education with an imaginative twist. Historical figures come to life in these stories rather than a list of forgettable names and places in the pages of a history book. An example is Napoleon Bonaparte's rise and fall as France's Emperor has woven many stories that excite both young and old.
But the best of all tales is telling your own personal stories of childhood and everyday experiences in a way that will also thrill these curious youngsters. It will enhance your creativity as well as entertaining leisure. The fun part is weaving your own fictional stories for children may also be a start of a meaningful friendship with them.
Whatever the genre of a story is, the excitement it ignites in the hearts and minds of the young will always depend on how the storyteller delivers it. Children have short attention spans so they mostly prefer stories told or read together with attractive pictures.
