storytelling-cover-picThis book provides the tools for both story reading and the neglected tradition of oral storytelling, using props, voices and facial expressions and encouraging empathy with thoughtful use of language. As the author says, ‘Both are hugely important… How to choose a story, how to prepare it, how to get and keep children’s attention to it and how often to tell it: all are crucial… Beyond are the wider issues of how you embed the stories in children’s lives, how you create interesting activities that relate to the stories.’ Includes stories, rhymes and activities.
