This book is a handy one-stop shop of 147 stories to retell, with an index linking all the stories to topics, values, plot types, genre, age group and country of origin. The stories come with extensive sources and alternate print and web versions for teachers to use when working with the stories. All are written in the storyteller’s voice, for easy retelling by teachers and students. Stories come with tips for telling and may be photocopied within the school.
Chris Smith developed the Storytelling Schools’ learning model, ‘Where children learn to be storytellers’ over ten years working with schools. He chose this collection in response to teachers’ requests for appropriate stories so that children can learn to retell stories as a powerful way of learning.
The collection is the first companion book to The Storytelling School: Handbook for Teachers.
