She continues to work closely with librarians, teachers, and hundreds of students at several elementary schools to test out new books, ideas, and ways
to incorporate literature into children s lives.

literature for adults, and a tireless cheerleader for literacy and storytelling.

Review:

"This handy how-to compendium is for seasoned storytellers or beginning tale tellers and is bound to become the most highlighted, tagged, bookmarked, post-it noted, and dog-eared well-loved volume on the book shelf." --Young Adult Books Blog

As a practicing storyteller for many years, The Handbook for Storytellers is the book I wished I had had when I first began telling stories. The authors, Judy Freeman and Caroline Feller Bauer, are experts in this field who provide the guidance and encouragement to practice the art and technique of storytelling at any level ... The book, an important go-to book for both experienced yarn spinners and beginning tellers, will be an important asset in children s literature collections, in public libraries, and in library school curricula." --Catholic Library World

Beginning storytellers will especially relish this title. Any questions will be answered in this extraordinary volume ... Highly recommended." --School Library Connection
