In Chièvres, Belgium, kindergarten students tell their class about their favorite book. However, they are too young to know how to read. Their story is a story told by their parents at home regularly. Rehearsing with them helps the children to remember the story
By reciting this story without being able to read it, children learn to speak in front of others, develop their ability to tell stories and work on their memory. Children who are listening learn to share by asking various questions about the story. This exercise allows the development of self-confidence, especially for children who are very shy, for whom speaking is difficult.
