Storytelling Art and Technique, 4th Edition Press Reviews

Ellin Greene once kept my library school storytelling class spellbound with her word-perfect, no-gestures telling of 'Elsie Piddock Skips in Her Sleep' and heard Janice do the same, at a party a few years later, with Helen Eustis's 'Mr. Death and the Red-headed Woman.' So let's be glad that these two have joined forces for the fourth edition of Storytelling: Art and Technique . . . This much-enlarged edition covers the history of storytelling; techniques for finding, learning, adapting, and telling stories; considerations of special audiences; and, of course, lots and lots of recommendations for stories to tell. - The Horn Book Magazine This title has been a standard professional reference work for nearly half a century, and with good reason. . . . Every public and school library will benefit from having this volume and consulting it should be often. - School Library Journal Designed for beginner and experienced storytellers and public and school librarians, this volume will also be helpful to any adult working with children and teens. . . . Whether absorbing the information cover to cover or looking for specific storytelling topics and aids, the reader will find this title a useful one to own. - Booklist The fourth edition of this storytelling standby includes a wealth of updated and new materials, covering both the cultural history of storytelling and offering a comprehensive instructional guide for the creation and administration of storytelling programs that can remain relevant in a media-saturated society. - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Storytelling: Art and Technique affirms the importance of an old tradition and provides librarians with the tools to help keep it alive. - American Libraries
