Religious instruction and education is at the same time a communication act. Communication is the one-way or two-way exchange of thoughts, sentiments and information among individuals. One way of communicating messages to the target individual or mass is the use of stories. A story is a literary work in which real or possible events are depicted and which incites excitement and joy in readers by relating interesting events in imagination. Stories teach the life to the children. While reading stories, the children enjoy themselves, at the same time, and learn many things emotionally and cognitively. Therefore, stories should be written paying attention to the child psychology and literary rules. The Quran resorts frequently to the method of storytelling. Although there were some discussion about the translated stories in the past in our country, such discussions have now disappeared. The point is the child will read what, when and how. If the families and educators fail to reach a sound decision in this respect, our society may face a cultural contamination.
