More About This Textbook

Overview

Storytelling is relationship. Stories become the threads that bind a family. We all tell stories about our experiences and daily life. When we die, it is our stories that are remembered. Family stories remembered and shared help the family, and the individuals who comprise it, to survive and flourish. Storytelling within the family provides quality time; creating bonds, increasing listening skills, and fostering communication. Enrich your family life, connect with your children, and celebrate your ancestors by learning to tell family stories, folktales, and nursery rhymes. Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family is a fascinating guide to the art of gathering and telling stories. Written by three renowned storytellers, Telling Tales includes personal stories, how-to tips and extensive resource lists, and builds upon the success of the acclaimed first edition. Storytelling is contagious. Telling stories helps us make sense of what is happening around us and within ourselves. Stories are our powerful gift to the younger generation.

Meet the Author

Merle has always been fascinated with the oral tradition and loved listening to stories. In 1972, as a new mother in a new country, she found herself remembering her childhood in Rhodesia and how African parents used storytelling rather than lecturing with their children, and falling back on this tradition to raise her sons. Later on as a library technician for eleven years, she used storytelling as a means of getting to know the children while at the same time teaching them listening skills and sparking an interest in reading. She has told stories in schools, libraries, seniors homes, women and juvenile detention centres, on the radio and at festivals across Canada. She has conducted storytelling workshops for children, teachers and parents across Alberta, in Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Audiences include listeners of all ages -- from pre-schoolers to senior citizens. An essay and short story, based on her involvement with the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program in Alberta, will be published in 2003 in The Healing Heart ~ Families: Storytelling To Encourage Caring and Healthy Families.

Celia Barker Lottridge comes from a storytelling family and started telling stories herself as a children's librarian. She was a co-founder of the Storytellers School of Toronto and one of the founders and developers of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program, a social service program for parents and young children with storytelling at its heart. Celia is the author of many books for children including several retellings of traditional stories, as well as novels based on the history of her own family (Ticket to Curlew and Wings to Fly) and on community history (The Wind Wagon).

Gail de Vos is a professional storyteller who specializes in telling tales to young adults. A former junior high school teacher, she is now Adjunct Professor at the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta and the author of seven books on storytelling and folk literature. Gail teaches courses on storytelling, young adult literature, Canadian children's literature, and comic books and graphic novels for use in school and public libraries. Gail de Vos grew up surrounded by stories of pioneers and family life and continues to be captivated by local history and family tales. She has been teaching storytelling for the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alberta since 1988 and is the co-founder and co-organizer of the T.A.L.E.S. Fort Edmonton Park Storytelling Festival. Gail tells stories and conducts storytelling workshops across North America and is the author of five other books on storytelling and folklore. She specializes in telling tales to adolescent audiences.
