9780874835533: Stories To Play With

For storytellers who are just starting out, it seems appropriate to begin telling to young children. Yet young children can present the most difficult audience a storyteller can face. So where does one begin? Simple. With some old newspaper and the story "Rain Hat" or "Mountain Climbing," children will be enthralled at the action of the kid-hero as you fold and tear and create mountains, hats, fans, and boats right before their very eyes. Or take a milk carton, and shape it into a frog puppet to tell the story of "Wide-Mouth Frog." Stories to Play With is written and designed for storytellers, parents, teachers, and activity leaders who work with young children. The stories are fun and useful, put forth in a playful, informal family style of telling. The materials used for puppets and visual props can be found in your kitchen or supply closet. Translated and adapted from the original Japanese, these stories have been tested extensively in front of American audiences and are sure to be a hit with young children and those who work with them.

From School Library Journal:

A selection of simple stories and a variety of attention-getting techniques for storytellers who are just starting out. The tales, intended for young children, are mainly drawn from Japanese or American tradition, but there are also several that are original. Fujita and Stallings have stretched their imaginations in order to describe quick and easy-to-make props ranging from milk-carton puppets to origami creations to illustrated scrolls. As with many collections, some stories are more creative and imaginative than others. Instructions for some can be confusing and require rereading and practice because the story relies on magic and illusion rather than memorization. Illustrated models and directions are in pen and ink; there are also several black-and-white photographs of Fujita telling the stories. A Japanese pronunciation guide is also included. The list of sources simply indicates the country of origin. However, the detailed notes give helpful suggestions for performing as well as adapting techniques to other tales. All in all, a welcome source for storytime fillers that will fascinate any audience.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
