Bedtime Storytelling by Beatrys Lockie

Anyone can master the art of storytelling with the right advice and plenty of practice! 

Storytelling allows you to lift a story from the page and bring it to life. Without a book you're free -- to personalise stories, make gestures, use props or give a hug or a tickle! But most importantly you have eye contact -- creating a greater connection between you and your child and allowing you to guage their reactions -- are they excited? Frightened? Engaged? 

This inspiring collection of tales, suitable for children aged from about three to seven years old, includes advice on how to become a confident storyteller. 

Collected by age interest, each of the classic stories are easy to memorise, adapt and enhance using simple storytelling know-how. You’ll find many are old favourites that are regularly told in kindergartens, nurseries and schools -- tales about magical creatures and exotic animals as well as stories from everyday life. 

Stories include: The Little Jug, The Mitten (Any Room for Me?), The Tomten, The Star Child, How the Zebra Got its Stripes, King Grizzly Beard and Hans in Luck.

No illustrations.
