From the Publisher"This is a valuable addition to any K-6 school library media center or professional development library where there is an interest in cross-disciplinary lessons complete with a library or information literacy component."
"For teachers of primary, elementary, and middle school grades, teachers and storytellers Norfolk et al. present 64 essays, lesson plans, and activities designed to enhance literacy development using storytelling. The contributing teachers and storytellers, who are mostly from the US, also discuss key aspects of speaking and listening, reading and writing, visual literacy, and information literacy, and provide plans that address national standards, assessment, using puppets, ESL classes, integrating art, rhythm, and movement, vocabulary, using picture books, and other ideas."

"This excellent essay collection connects storytelling to music, poetry, art, social studies, math, science, and physical education and provides sample stories and hands-on lesson plans for pre-school through middle school-plus classrooms. . . . It is a fascinating collection with useful, creative surprises for classrooms and library programs."
"Educators at any level will find this book a valuable resource to guide them in crafting lessons rooted in storytelling. For schools looking for innovative ideas, the editors offer a tried and true way to engage students. For teachers desiring to hone their personal storytelling skills the book provides multiple opportunities with strong educational underpinnings. Recommended."
Library Media Connection
"This work has very original, stimulating material principally for classroom teachers, but it could have relevance for teacher librarians and for public librarians conducting holiday programmes for children and early teens. Many of the discussions from the contributors offer inspiration and fresh approaches through a very wide interpretation of storytelling."
