Storytelling: Art and Technique
Ten years ago, "Book Report" called the third edition of "Storytelling: Art and Technique," "invaluable ... a volume no librarian will want to be without." This fourth edition of the classic storytelling "how to" is even better--with 30 percent new material, additional chapters, new stories, and updated bibliographies.
This edition provides both a history of storytelling in libraries and accessible instruction for bringing storytelling to contemporary listeners. It details the selection, preparation, and presentation of stories, as well as planning and administration of a storytelling program. Full texts of 13 stories for various ages and occasions are included, as is an extensive list of resources. Bonus essays offer a fascinating international perspective through a survey of storytelling in Ireland and the British Isles and a look at storytelling in contemporary China. Complete with everything one needs to know to launch a successful storytelling program, this is the perfect book for librarians, teachers, parents--and professional storytellers, too.
