Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patrice Belotte
If you were a sailor marooned on a lonely island, how would you survive? Would you never give up on the hope of being rescued? Or would you succumb to the perils of desertion and waste away? Imagine you were a seal, swimming anxiously through the sea, in search of your next meal. A ship nearing the shore ahead catches your attention and you follow, quietly trailing the ship and listening to the calls of the sailors on board. When the ship takes anchor and the sailors begin to descend onto the sand, you rise from the water and walk across the shore—having both the ability to swim as a seal, yet walk as a human. The "Storyworld" series strives to inspire the storyteller in all of us. This series captures the legends of the sea that are both new and old. The set comes with 28 cards, each with an illustration, story title, and inspiration to get your story started. The illustrations on each card include unique details that help to shape the writer's imagination when adding to the plot of the story. Beyond the unique details are clues, little symbols that connect to other cards within the series. Connect the clues to help add to or elaborate a story. The set also comes with an introductory booklet that includes a sample story and directions on how to use the cards. Beyond storywriting, the set of cards can also be used for games between children and their parents or friends. Reviewer: Patrice Belotte
