The book is a gem.

Format: Paperback
Children NEED to hear stories, and not just from books. They especially need their parents to spend time with them, and storytelling is a wonderful way to do this.
This book is full of good information, including some of the history of storytelling. Among others, there is a chapter on learning stories to tell, and another to help with creating your own stories. There is also an �afterward� that addresses storytelling in relation to environmentalism.
Creative Storytelling is a book intended for parents, teachers, day care providers and librarians. It would also be a worthy read for camp counselors. I would recommend it to people in any of these positions.

As a resource for families, teachers, and librarians, this book is readable and reliable. The stories and suggestions about how to tell stories are especially useful. I have used the book for over 8 years in my work as a storyteller in the classroom.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you aren't already completely enamored with stories and storytelling, this book will totally ensnare your heart! I am a teacher and bought it for some tips on telling stories and also to give my students ideas on writing them. As if I didn't already love stories enough this book made me want to read every single legend, folktale, and myth in print! I learned a lot about storytelling, writing your own stories and collecting the best stories. It is perfect for anyone that wants to spin a yarn with finesse and please an audience! Storytelling is a dying art and needs to be preserved. This book does it's part in training new storytellers to enter the magic world of storytelling. Highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback
This is absolutely the best book I've found on storytelling for parents. The content makes logical sense, and is more of a "How-to" guide than any other book I've seen on the subject. If you are an aspiring storyteller with a small child (or children), this book will help you tell and/or create stories. Engaging your children in stories is also a great way to avoid the zombie tube.
