Twisted Tales

Shouldn't we allow our kids imaginations to flourish and live without restraint? Wonderland. Fairy land. Never-never Land. They do exist. And -
they always will - if you believe! If you allow your imagination to play.

A child’s education begins as play. Imagination is part of every game played.

Did you ever sit in the background and just observe your child at play?

It's an amazing experience. Dramas acted out and solved within their own frame of mind. Sometimes the solution doesn’t make sense to us.
That doesn’t matter. Your child was exercising his imagination and things were happening within his imaginary world.

The ability to imagine and believe in a fanciful reality have lead to lives of creative pursuits which could only have been brought about by a healthy use of the imagination.

Formal education trains the eye, trains the hand, teaches the ability to reason and strengthens the power of observation, but it is the higher power of the imagination that turns a child with a crayon into an artist, a dreamer into one who reaches for the moon and an early reader into an author or a poet or a nobel prize winner.

Leave the facts for the formal education system.

Fairy tales allow your kids to play the game “what if”.

What if?

Where would we be if Edison had not thought "what if"?
Where would we be if Franklin had not thought "what if"?
What if Newton had ignored the falling apple?

Would man have ever walked on the moon, if we had not thought
"what if"?

Did you enjoy our fables and fairy tales? I do hope so. Have you ever thought of putting on a play? Now your kids can act out their favorite fables with our newest collection of playscripts. There are two new collections to choose from.

Participating in a dramatic play develops critical thinking skills, along with reading comprehension and communication skills.

We’re all familiar with team work and its valuable life lessons. Acting in a play requires team work. And, what about role play? Role play has been documented as highly beneficial to a child’s social growth. That’s what acting in a play is! - Role play.

Even kids who complain about not wanting to read are interested in the dramatizations. Let’s face it, not all children like to sit with a book in their hand. Some are hands-on learners. Plays are hands-on.

Introducing children to this format when they are young is a fun and easy way of instilling these valuable life skills and lessons. As parents, we take our tools any and every way available. A child’s play is another one of those tools not to be overlooked. Why not give a play a try? It’s always a good day for a play.
