    When we collect children's stories, we strengthen their literacy skills and their ability to ask and answer questions. When we connect stories, we pave the way for making friends and for later reading comprehension, when children will need to connect books to themselves, other books, and the world.  When we nurture stories, we give children the opportunity to practice the social, emotional, and cognitive skills needed for creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking.
