Very simple, easy-to-use guide for beginning storytellers. The chapters are concise, easy to read, and provide useful information, not only on the dos and don'ts of storytelling but also on how to get started. Also provides some tips about mixing up your storytelling presentations, and the bibliography in the back is top notch. I especially liked the advice regarding practicing and coming up with your storytelling ideas, as well as what to do when you (inevitably) forget something. Highly useful resource for future - and present! - librarians interested in incorporating storytelling into their programs.
