4.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Resource for Beginning Storytellers May 26, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
"Storytelling: Art & Technique" is an excellent book for anybody interested in becoming a storyteller. It begins with the history, purpose, and value of storytelling. The chapters on selecting and preparing a story are very helpful. Also included is information on storytelling to different audiences, from children with special needs to young adults. At the end are thirteen delightful stories to tell. Each story contains the source, culture, telling time, audience, and notes on telling. I found this chapter as well as the appendix full of sources to be incredibly valuable! Although this book can be a little dry in places, it is an outstanding resource for storytellers, especially those just starting out!

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent book on storytelling to children December 22, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book wasn't that much help to me, but I was looking for something that I thought I could glean from this book to help me with storytelling to teenagers and young adults. If you only want info on storytelling for young children this book is probably a good one.

I retired from teaching earlier this year. I decided I missed it but was not willing to go back to the same conditions that only get worse. I am now a storyteller who goes into classrooms and encourages and motivates children to read, want to read, etc.
