As children we are wired to listen intently to stories; they’re an easy way to learn a lesson, and are much more interesting than data, rules and hard facts. Stories move us emotionally as well as intellectually, which gives more meaning to the lesson in the story.

What thou see-est, thou bee-est; seek something of value in each story and you will value the lesson it offers.
