Synopsis: Family storytelling offers many of the same advantages as book reading - and some new ones - for children's language and emotional development, coping skills, and sense of belonging.
Tell Me a Story: Sharing Stories to Enrich Your Child's World shows parents how telling and sharing stories about family experiences can help children grow into healthy, happy adolescents and adults. Dr. Elaine Reese outlines the techniques that work best with children of all ages, from toddlers to teens, including children with learning delays and difficult temperaments. She also tackles challenging issues such as whether children profit at all from the stories that they experience through TV, movies, and video games; how storytelling differs from daughters to sons; and the best ways to continue to share family stories with children after a separation or divorce. Finally, Reese shares tips specially designed for storytelling with grandchildren, demonstrating how parents can and should continue to nurture family storytelling long after their children are grown, and especially once their children become parents themselves. Providing guidance on a positive, portable, and free way to enrich children's development, Tell Me a Story deserves a place in every parent's library.

Contemporary research shows that parents who tell and read stories in a rich and responsive way have children with advanced language, memory, and emotional development. Many parents and educators have relied on reading books out loud to children as a way to strengthen their literacy skills, but what they may not know is that family storytelling may be just as important for children s development as reading books. In Tell Me a Story Dr. Elaine Reese explains how storytelling is valuable for children s language, emotional development, coping, self-concept, and sense of belonging. Based on solid research evidence collected over the last two decades, this book shows parents how to maximize these benefits with storytelling techniques that work with children of all ages, from toddlers to teens, and all kinds of children, including children with ADHD, difficult temperaments, and language delays. Reese identifies the most effective ways for strengthening children s language, cognitive, and coping skills and addresses the following questions: How can parents tell stories that matter to children and adolescents? How is storytelling with daughters different than storytelling with sons? How can parents and grandparents share stories that teenagers will want to hear? Why is it a good idea to tell children stories in addition to reading them stories from a book? Parents and grandparents will enjoy Reese s narrative excerpts and storytelling tips and be eager to apply their newfound skills to promote their children s and grandchildren s development and enhance their time together.
