The book "Penny and The Monster" is a story of a girl named Penny who moves to a new house and slowly discovers there are monsters in the house. It’s a combination of horror with a touch of humor and has a moral "how one can overcome their fear."  "Penny and the Monsters" is the fourth book in the short moral story series by Ridhhaan Jaiin. The first book "Once Upon In My Mind" is an anthology of 10 short moral stories and received lots of love from his friends, teachers and other readers. His second book "The Mirror and The Greedy Man" is very close to his heart as it gives a message that we should value everything and every being around us, misusing will only make you lose what you earned.

When asked why he thinks storytelling is the best way to learn and remember new information, Ridhhaan said:


"When you hear a story, you can picture it in your head. It's like you're living it yourself. That way, you remember it better. And it's more fun too!"


Ridhhaan's words are very wise and inspire us to look at learning in a new way. It is true that when we hear a story, we are more likely to remember it than if we just read it in a textbook. And isn't it more fun to hear a story than to read a list of facts?


Ridhhaan is just one of many young people who are using their talents to change the world at RidhzWorld Publishing.


Why is storytelling an effective way to learn and remember new information?


Storytelling is an effective way to learn and remember new information because it engages multiple aspects of the brain to comprehend and retain the material. It helps students to see the connections between the knowledge that is presented and their personal experiences. The three components of storytelling— narrative, emotion, and structure— facilitate understanding and enable students to comprehend the material in a meaningful way. Moreover, storytelling engages all the senses. This makes it easier for students to comprehend and recall the material in a much more effective way. Furthermore, storytelling helps students to understand how knowledge is connected to other knowledge and how it applies to real-world scenarios. This type of understanding is essential for mastering concepts and retaining information. Storytelling also enables students to apply the material in their own lives. When students relate the information to personal experiences, they are more likely to remember it and apply it in future scenarios. This can help to improve memory and retention of new information.


How can you use storytelling to improve your memory and retention of new information?


The best way to use storytelling to improve your memory and retention of new information is to ask yourself questions about the material before and after you hear the story. For example, before you begin to tell a story, ask yourself questions such as, "What is the main message of this story?" or "What key details should I remember?" Once you have asked yourself these questions, it will be easier for you to remember the details of the story. After you have told or heard a story, review the material by asking yourself questions such as, "What key messages can I take away from this story?" or "How does this story relate to my own experiences?" Answering these types of questions can help you better remember and recall the material. It is also important to visualize the story as you tell or hear it. Visualizing the story can help make the material more memorable and can also help you to understand the material more deeply. Finally, it's important to practice your storytelling skills by recalling the story in detail and revisiting it whether it is to recite it to others or simply to review it in private.


What are some benefits of using storytelling as a learning tool?


Using storytelling as a learning tool can provide several benefits. The most obvious is that it can help to improve memory and retention of new information. Storytelling helps to engage multiple aspects of the brain to comprehend and understand the material, enabling students to remember it better and apply it to their life situations. Additionally, storytelling is an effective tool to help students gain a better understanding of a topic. By connecting the material to personal experiences and connecting it to other types of knowledge, students can gain a much deeper level of understanding about a given subject. Furthermore, visualizing the story can help students to stay focused and to better recall the material. Lastly, storytelling is an engaging tool that can capture student attention and interest. Storytelling is a lot more entertaining than simply reading a textbook, and it can help to reduce boredom and disinterest. When students find the material engaging, they are more likely to retain the information and recall it better in the future.


How can you incorporate storytelling into your daily life?


Storytelling can easily be incorporated into your daily life. The best way to start is to identify opportunities to tell stories. These can range from recounting an event that happened during the day to sharing a meaningful experience, to exploring theoretical topics with friends or family. Then, practice your storytelling skills by reciting stories to yourself or others. Practice retelling the stories in detail and learn to incorporate visuals and emotions into your narratives. This can also provide a deeper level of understanding of the information. You can also use storytelling as a way to help you better understand and retain new information. Start by breaking down the information into small parts and creating a basic outline. Then, use your skills to fill in the details of the story and make sure to ask questions about the material before and after you tell the story to help you better remember and recall the material.
