Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Uma Krishnaswami
Hamilton and Weiss are the "Beauty and the Beast Storytellers," and this is a collection of thirty stories from diverse sources, for kids to tell. But it's much, much more. The stories are scripted, and the scripts include valuable suggestions for staging a storytelling performance, whether in the family or to a large audience. The stories are also arranged in order of increasing complexity. Storytelling tips aimed at a young readership are further amplified in a section on guidelines for the adults who might find themselves in a helping or teaching role with young storytellers. For the teacher or storyteller who might want to delve further, a source list is provided, some of the sources referenced to the Stith Thompson index of folk literature. A valuable addition to the resource shelves of teachers, storytellers, homeschooling families, and anyone else who loves a good story.
