Are you in fact a Story Ambassador ignoring himself? If you are a parent telling stories to your children from time to time, your are, in a sense, a Story Ambassador. You may not have read 1 million stories yet, but you are already bringing happiness in the life of your children. You are already creating this very special moment with your little one which he will remember for the rest of his life. In short, you are already giving them the best gift a parent can give to his child: the interest in books and eventually, the desire to learn how to read by himself.
Yesterday, I wrote that My Story Dream was to tell more than 1 million stories to children all around the world. Way too many children in the world do not have the immense chance I had to grow in a family where stories are an integral part of the life.
In my dream, I’m also seeing Story Ambassadors in each country, looking for those children in need of stories and organizing story telling events for them.
How nice would it be to bring some smiles, hope and happiness to those children, for at least a couple of minutes?
What if by telling stories to those children we could give them hope to have the life they deserve to have?
