For teachers who already have some experience of storytelling as well as for those who are eager to try it, Marion Ralston, by anecdote and by example, shows how she first entered, then enjoyed, that magical world. She suggests simple ways to promote storytelling in the classroom through a series of imaginative activities, providing a list of stories for the novice storyteller, a reading inventory to assist the teacher in evaluating the types of subject matter of most interest to individual students, a full professional bibliography, an annotated list of participation titles and read-alouds for young students and an international list of folk tales.
