How to Tell Stories to Children: And Some Stories to Tell
One might assume that anyone can make up a story on the spot that will hold the attention of a group of children, but in reality, that's not the case. To really capture the imagination of an audience of young people, special attention has to be paid to narrative structure, storytelling conventions, and embellishments. In How to Tell Stories to Children, Sara Cone Bryant offers a treasure trove of practical tips to would-be storytellers. Great for parents, teachers, caregivers, and others who want to hold their audience spellbound.
