    relate to them

    Would you please paraphrase the following in red more easily? And the "them" refers to "stories", doesn't it?

    In doing so, Dr. Seuss personified the power of rediscovering our childhood imagination. He fabricated his stories in a way that kids could easily relate to them. In other words, he was able to reconnect with his own childlike creativity to defy convention...

    Thank you.

    Yes, "them" refers to "his stories".

    Re: relate to them

    Then does "relate to" mean "easily understand or enjoy" in the context?
