And if to change books, you were trying to invent a story to tell your child? If you think you can not do it, or lack imagination, here are some tips to start ...

1. A contradiction to begin

  • To create a bit of suspense, start your story with a dynamic contradiction. For example: "Once upon a time there was a bird that could not sing" or "Once upon a time, a butterfly that could not fly". Starting with an unusual scenario, you call a resolution of the problem and the rest of the story will be easier to imagine.

2. Details to better visualize the characters

  • To make the story more alive, describe as much as possible your characters to make them endearing. So your cat will be in reality: "Hector the cat, who had lost his tail in a fight when he was little". The more rich your story is, the more likely your child will react by asking you questions. And yes, first of all, with whom had he fought this Hector, do you know?

3. Characters close to your child

  • Make your characters feel feelings known to your child: sadness, anger, fear ... Without turning to the lesson of morality, you can adapt situations to his experience: "Pepin the little bear who would not eat his soup".

4. A story = an end

  • Your story must take your characters to a goal. If your butterfly can not fly, what will happen next? And the bird, will he find his voice? Your starting situation should take you to a plausible end.

5. Play it!

  • Invent voices for your characters and do not hesitate to mime their actions, it will make your child laugh. Do you feel like you're doing too much? Your child loves it!
