Bedtime Storytelling: A Collection for Parents

What is so special about telling stories? Unlike reading from a book, one’s arms are free to gesture and use props—or give a tickle. Above all, one can make eye contact and see and respond to a child’s reactions.

This collection of classic tales includes advice on how to tell stories to children—how to establish a routine, create a mood, involve children, and personalize stories. The stories are suitable for children three to seven years of age. Many are old favorites that are told regularly in kindergartens, nurseries, and schools—tales about magical creatures and exotic animals, as well as stories from everyday life. Many people believe they cannot tell stories. Beatrys Lockie, however, believes firmly that everyone is a storyteller, though it may take a little practice.
