Choosing, Inventing, & Sharing Tales for Children
Quite simply, Creative Storytelling is one of the best and most comprehensive books on telling stories. This newly expanded, beautifully illustrated, step-by-step guide tells readers about sources and types of stories; how to gear stories toward children of different ages and interests; techniques for remembering and adapting stories; and how to use personal experiences to create new stories. One chapter takes a story through the complete storytelling process, with specific tips on tone, pacing, and atmosphere. A special section examines how storytelling leads to a wide range of other creative activities. This edition also features a new section on storytelling and environmentalism, with information on creating stories that foster environmental awareness.
