It seems reasonable to assume that once humans had tools to help feed themselves, a campfire to sit around and an extended family with some leisure time and the gift of the spoken word, then they would have occupied their time telling stories, as well as gameplay, and probably doing art also. I think it is also reasonable to assume that some of these stories were meant to entertain, but the goal of others must have been to pass down cultural traditions and knowledge.
Children use stories to learn. The key is getting an idea worth telling someone about. This helps.
