How to Tell Stories to Children, and Some Stories to Tell

How to Tell Stories to Children, and Some Stories to Tell by Sara Cone Bryant
By: (1873-?)

"How to Tell Stories to Children, and Some Stories to Tell" by Sara Cone Bryant is a valuable resource for parents, teachers, and anyone who interacts with children on a regular basis. Bryant provides practical advice on how to captivate young audiences through storytelling, emphasizing the importance of engaging both the minds and hearts of children.

The book is divided into two main sections – the first focusing on the art of storytelling and the second offering a collection of stories to be told. Bryant's insights on the importance of using vivid language, gestures, and expressions to bring stories to life are both informative and inspiring. She emphasizes the power of imagination and encourages storytellers to use their own creativity to enhance the storytelling experience.

The second half of the book contains a variety of classic tales and fables that are perfect for sharing with children. From traditional folk tales to stories with moral lessons, Bryant's selection of stories is both diverse and engaging. Each story is accompanied by suggestions on how to effectively present it to young listeners, making it easy for readers to incorporate these stories into their own storytelling repertoire.

Overall, "How to Tell Stories to Children, and Some Stories to Tell" is a must-read for anyone looking to connect with children through the power of storytelling. Bryant's guidance is practical and accessible, making it easy for even novice storytellers to incorporate her tips and techniques into their own storytelling routines. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in fostering a love of literature and storytelling in young audiences.
