Children of all ages love hearing stories. Many parents, though,
freeze when their children ask them to tell a story rather than
read one, or panic when they begin to lose their attention
Margaret Read MacDonald comes to the rescue with a collection of
helpful hints and techniques -- everything from when to raise or
lower your voice to suggested refrains for audience participation.
She explains how to capture children's attention with easy-to-use
dramatic techniques and simple fingerplays. Chapters focus on
storytelling for the youngest listeners, bedtime stories and
expandable tales, scary stories, improvisational ideas, and family
To help beginners get started, MacDonald includes dozens of
traditional stories as examples in an easy-to-follow format.
Includes a useful bibliography divided into topic areas, including
old standards and new collections.
