    Storytelling

    usually

    is reciting a story from memory

    and can also include making up a story on the spot.

    Reading aloud

    is obviously easier

    because the words of the story are there in front of you.

    Reading aloud involves spoken language, but at the same time a printed text is present. This means that during story reading both oral and written language are modeled at once. On the other hand, storytelling does not require the presence of a printed text.

    Many sensible answers already, and I'll just add that while lots of people read aloud to themselves, I don't think many people do "story telling" without an audience.

    Hi,

    There is a minor difference between both, Reading aloud involves a spoken language, but at the same time, a printed text is present. This means that during story reading both oral and written language are modeled at once. On the other hand, storytelling does not require the presence of a printed text.

    Storytelling requires memory or thinking about what you're saying.

    One is telling (not reading) a story, the other is reading (anything) aloud.

    Story telling is to dramatize the story. Give it life, act the parts.

    Reading aloud has none of that art.

    not much difference
