About Stories

“To be human is to be a storyteller. A computer can tell us how many words are in a story, correct some spelling errors, and execute other mechanical tasks — but it doesn’t have a clue to what the story is about. Conversely, although children will miscount the words and miss many spelling errors, they can easily tell us the gist of the story – and even imaginatively recount the story in their own words.”

~ Barbara K. Walker, The Art of the Turkish Tale
