Understanding social-emotional behaviors in storytelling interactions plays a critical role in the development of interactive and educational technologies for children. A challenge when designing for such interactions using technologies like social robots, virtual agents, and tablets is understanding the social-emotional behaviors pertinent to the storytelling context—especially when emulating a natural peer-to-peer relationship between the child and the technology. We present P2PSTORY, a dataset of young children (5-6 years old) engaging in natural peer-to-peer storytelling interactions with fellow classmates. The dataset contains 58 recorded storytelling sessions along with a diverse set of behavioral annotations as well as developmental and demographic profiles of each child participant.
