Five-Minute Tales: More Stories to Read and Tell When Time Is Shortby Margaret Read MacDonald
As a companion to her award-winning story collection Three Minute Tales, Margaret Read MacDonald has compiled another delightful collection of entertaining stories from around the world edited especially for the tastes and interests of young readers.
Quick tales in storytellersa' pockets are like money in the bank. They fill in when programs are delayed, and when class periods are cut short or interrupted so that lengthier stories are no longer suitable. These events occur so often that most seasoned tellers always have a Plan B in their preparations. This collection fits the bill with participation, animal, origin, riddle, romance, strange, trickster, and moral tales from around the world and for all ages. MacDonald provides sources and variations as the stories have traveled throughout different lands and cultures. She uses her own experiences to provide hints for telling to audiences of different ages. Her practical guidance enables newer as well as veteran tellers to proceed confidently with these engaging stories. A useful addition for reading or telling at schools, libraries, community centers, religious schools, and at home.-Judy Sokoll, Florida Storytelling Association, NaplesCopyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
