Storytelling among Children: A Survey

Cynthiya Rose J S, Bhuvaneswari R.

Abstract
Oral tradition is the reminiscence of the past, transferred via storytelling, known in specified
cultural anthropology. More than any other form and genre, storytelling influences the children through their
powerful narration. Culture and tradition are passed on from one generatio n to another through folklores
and folktales. Indian folktales like Panchatantra, Hitopadesha, and Jataka are noteworthy culture-based narratives
with anthropomorphic (animals having the human traits) characters. The research paper employs the questionnaire
method to understand childrenís involvement and interest in reading and listening to anthropomorphic stories.
The respondents are children in the age group of 10 to 12 years from Tanjore (Thanjavur) district, Tamilnadu,
India. The questions were based on the choice of stories they listen to and books they read, how and why they
relate themselves to the anthropomorphic characters, parentís and teacherís involvement in storytelling. Both
animal and non-animal (human) stories were narrated to children to identify their (boys and girls) interest in
culture and tradition they belong to. The story observation leads to creative thinking and a broader perspective on
gender classifications in children. The study reveals the positive impact of storytelling on children, thereby
developing language skills and their understanding of gender and culture.

Key words: Oral tradition, Culture, Storytelling, Anthropomorphism, Gender.
