STORYLANDS begins with seven distinct realms: vivid settings that give a true sense of place; places that we want to return to, to see what will happen next. Within each realm lives a cast of memorable characters who, in turn, inhabit stories that children will want to read again and again.
Across all cultures and peoples, the same basic story structures recur again and again. The questing hero, the journey, comedy, mystery and adventure are stories we have all seen, heard or read many times. They have been a fundamental teaching tool for millennia, passing down from one generation to the next the ideas, lessons and goals that we value. Stories broaden a child’s experience of the world and what is possible.
