Introduction... The telling of stories is an ancient method of transmitting education to young generations. During the various stages of civilizations mankind has undergone, the ruling classes would seek to appropriate knowledge and to confine it to a select few. Those thus favored were revered by the rest who heard the words of wisdom for example relating to creation or (discovery) in our time. Endowed with such wisdom, the select circle (scribes) created works of art such as poems, sculptures in the images of great rulers, musical instruments, and architectural structures of wonder for example pyramids. Peoples beliefs in mystery were reinforced since those with knowledge throughout the ages followed the tradition of withholding the source of wisdom up until this generation called the Information age. In our age, we know everybody has their own story and what is more can tell his/her story and not just scribes. This book is dedicated to all Children in the world.
