Journey Stories

Journey Stories

If you look closely at children’s literature, you will see that there are loads and loads of stories that involve a journey of some kind - where the main character has to leave one place and get to another and, in the process, overcome all kinds of obstacles and challenges. Why are stories that involve journeys so popular? Because they teach children the importance of perseverance and willpower when pursuing a goal. And that even though one goes through hardships on the journey itself; ultimately you emerge stronger and smarter at the end.

Now is a time of Journeys for all of us.
