Our Stories

This is a collection of knowonder! Read-Aloud stories.

Read-aloud stories and picture books are very different from each other. They are both needed, but they provide very different benefits. (learn more on

Consider these key benefits of read-aloud stories:

  • Listening skills are built
  • concentration improves as children learn to sit still and focus
  • comprehension and understanding of events (cause and effect relationships) is enhanced
  • imagination is actively exercised as children imagine the scenes, characters and worlds the words create
  • vocabulary is increased as children discover new words
  • a child’s ability to guess meanings of new words grows
  • children become more confident because they know they are cared for and loved and because they can express their thoughts and needs
  • children are better-enabled to make friends and good relationships because their communication skills are increased
  • learning in all subjects becomes much easier because the brain is literally being hard-wired to learn and take in new information
  • family bonds are strengthened and reinforced, creating an atmosphere of love, trust and communication in the home which will last a lifetime

While it can be said that many of these benefits come from picture books, most of them are developed much better, faster, and deeper with read-aloud stories.

When you consider the sum-total of all these benefits, it’s easy to see why reading to your child every day from birth is the single-most important thing a parent can do to ensure a child’s success in life.
