How to Tell Stories to Children

Gelesen von LibriVox Volunteers

Sarah Cone Bryant was an educator and storyteller who wrote several books on the importance of oral storytelling to children, and stories to tell children. This volume expounds on her theories and practices of telling stories to children, and provides several examples. Her conversational writing style makes this work as relevant for parents and teachers as it was 90 years ago. (Summary by Sean McGaughey) (5 hr 54 min)
