From the Publisher
"The fourth edition of this storytelling standby includes a wealth of updated and new materials, covering both the cultural history of storytelling and offering a comprehensive instructional guide for the creation and administration of storytelling programs that can remain relevant in a media-saturated society."
Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Storytelling: Art and Technique affirms the importance of an old tradition and provides librarians with the tools to help keep it alive."
"Designed for beginner and experienced storytellers and public and school librarians, this volume will also be helpful to any adult working with children and teens. . . . Whether absorbing the information cover to cover or looking for specific storytelling topics and aids, the reader will find this title a useful one to own."
"Ellin Greene once kept my library school storytelling class spellbound with her word-perfect, no-gestures telling of 'Elsie Piddock Skips in Her Sleep' and heard Janice do the same, at a party a few years later, with Helen Eustis's 'Mr. Death and the Red-headed Woman.' So let's be glad that these two have joined forces for the fourth edition of Storytelling: Art and Technique . . . This much-enlarged edition covers the history of storytelling; techniques for finding, learning, adapting, and telling stories; considerations of special audiences; and, of course, lots and lots of recommendations for stories to tell."
The Horn Book Magazine
"This title has been a standard professional reference work for nearly half a century, and with good reason. . . . Every public and school library will benefit from having this volume and consulting it should be often."
