I am the youngest of 10 children, needless to say, I did a lot of baby sitting. That is where I learned how to tell stories. My nieces and nephews would challenge me, they would ask me to tell a story about various objects or animals. Then they would give me a minute or so, and I would have to think of a story. That was the fun part, watching their faces as I told them a story about something they thought was just an object. I hoped it made their imaginations grow just as much as it did mine.
