Ideas from books, articles & podcasts.
The idea is to use props or live musical accompaniment and let your child join in on the action.
Find an instrument, and as you tell the story, your child scores it. Or you can let your child take the lead - if they speed up, you speed up the action. You can also let everyone take a turn advancing the story.

Every story should have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Every story should also include a conflict and a resolution.
When telling a story, use pitch, pacing, and pausing to keep your child hanging on your every word.
Reading to your children is an indispensable tool. Storytelling goes hand-in-hand with reading to help children develop language and story comprehension.
The advantage of telling over reading is that you don't have to hold and look at a physical book. You can use your face and hands to gesture and make eye contact.
A story can be changed around. If your kid wants to change the character, you can do that. A voyage through the seas can become a journey to Mars. You can change the sequence, the characters, or the phrases. This nurtures ideas we want our children to develop.
