Storytelling is almost as old a language itself. In fact, some cultures still use spoken stories to pass on information to younger generations because the language is not written down. Storytelling is also not just for children; it covers the entire age range of the population and covers all aspects of life: Explaining where a good hunting area is, passing on culture, entertaining and generally educating. The important thing to remember is that when telling stories, the listener has to do half the work. The listener has to make the image of what is being described; the listener is indeed as creative as the story teller.
