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.
The chapters divide the subject matter into manageable parts so the skill can be easily learned. Chapters include -- Stories and Storytelling, Types of Stories, Finding Stories for Different Listeners, Remembering and Adapting Stories, Creating Your Own Stories, Telling Stories and Beyond Storytelling. Within these chapters is a wealth of detail to assist the adult in entering the world of the child. The author provides the basic storytelling formula and ways to adapt the story to the listener while maintaining the individual style of the teller and incorporating observation, experience and imagination.
To continue the tradition of storytelling seems a sacred trust, something we must not permit to fade away, and this book will enable anyone interested in the pursuit to excel. The book is a gem.
