What you hold in your hands is not a collection of stories. It is a simple, yet revolutionary method to create your own.
As natural as walking, storytelling is one of the oldest and most essential skills known to humankind. In this delightful book, Silke Rose West and Joseph Sarosy—early childhood teachers with thousands of storytelling hours between them—distill the key ingredients of storytelling into a surprisingly simple method for weaving original, imaginative stories from the very fabric of your day. Their intuitive technique and easy-to-follow exercises will make anyone an expert storyteller. By shifting the focus from crafting a narrative to the relationship with your child, this book will awaken skills you never knew you had. Complete with practical advice, helpful prompts, and a touch of science to explain why stories enrich our lives, How to Tell Stories to Children will help you discover the stories that are already inside you, just waiting to be told.
