  •  Cagri Tugrul Mart    


Reading is an important part of successful language acquisition. Motivating young learners to learn English through stories at an early age provides them the opportunity to widen their horizons and stimulate their early enthusiasm and enhance their awareness of the rich use of English. Stories are unquestionably a significant part of children’s literacy development. When we read to our children, we do not confine them to academic excellence but extend into their emotional and behavioral learning (Ai Lian Kim, 2008). Reading at an early age is essential. Therefore, this article focuses on how to spark student’s interest towards English through stories and how stories develop their language learning.
