This is a great book with lots of ideas for using storytelling, drama, reader’s theater, silly chants and rhythms, and stories in the elementary school classroom. The book is divided into sections: getting started, a songbook (with lesson plan ideas for some of the songs), a storybook of easy-to-tell tales, a huge list of books that every storyteller should know, booklists of the different types of tales, a list of professional storytelling books, websites, and information about reader’s theater and creative drama. I love how much of a resource guide this book is—not only does it give great ideas and silly songs and easy beginning stories, but it also points to a number of other amazing resources. I would definitely get this book as someone just starting in storytelling and developing storytelling programs.
