Encouraging Your Child's Imagination: A Guide and Stories for Play Acting
iPads, iPhones, Notebooks, X-Boxes, PlayStations, Televisions, Computers. They've found their way into every corner of our lives. Add to that, the pressures of the modern education with standardized tests and crowded classrooms, and it seems that our children have lost the simplicity of childhood. Are our children losing their imagination, too? Carol Bouzoukis gives us just the remedy.
Encouraging Your Child's Imagination: A Guide and Stories for Playacting is an easy-to-use guide to creating simple dramas with young children. This innovative "how-to" book is written especially for parents, daycare providers, librarians, educators, and youth leaders who want to not only encourage their child's imagination but enhance their self-esteem and joy of learning. Dr. Bouzoukis recounts nine familiar children's stories for reading aloud and presenting to our children. By following the tips and using the sample questions, anyone can create a story drama in their living room, garage, Sunday school class or community center. Each story includes an analysis that adds insight into the creative process and reminds parents how simple and care-free it is to let our imaginations turn us into wolves, gingerbread boys, trees, and rivers.
