Introduction: "Once Upon a Time" "Once upon a time" is a well-known phrase that virtually always guarantees attention from children. Personally, what does it make you think of? Whom does it take you back to? Habitually, this phrase refers to emotionally charged childhood memories. Coincidently, when children hear "Once upon a time," their attention is grabbed almost immediately. A moment of suspense is created, and most children become attentive to what is to come. This succession of words could be considered like an open door into the world of make-believe, a world of dreams, of fabulous characters, of animals, etc. Storytelling, like every other work of art, as Cecily O'Neill says, "gives access to a self-contained imaginative universe, a dramatic 'elsewhere'" (45).
