Bedtime Storytelling - Become Your Child's Storyteller by Beatrys Lockie
Bedtime Storytelling gives parents valuable tips and confidence to try the unique art of storytelling with their children. Each of the classic tales in this collection is perfect for adaptation to each child or their mood. All stories are suitable for children between 3 and 7-years-old.
What is so special about telling stories? Unlike when reading from a book, you have your arms free to make gestures, use props - or give a tickle. And above all, you have eye contact, so you can observe and respond to your child's reactions. This collection of classic tales includes advice on how to tell stories to children: how to establish a routine and create a mood; how to involve children and personalise your stories. Many are old favourites that are regularly told in playgroups, kindergartens and schools - tales about magical creatures and exotic animals as well as stories from everyday life.
Many people say they cannot tell stories, but Beatrys Lockie is a firm believer that everyone can; it just takes a little practice.
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.
