The Story Vine: A Source Book of Unusual and Easy-to-Tell Stories from Around the Worldby Anne Pellowski
Here is the unusual collection of stories, each of
Throughout the world, nothing is so universally loved by young and old alike as a good story. And what makes a good story better is that something extra to embellish it - clever line drawings that follow the plot; a collection of nesting dolls, one for each character; a cat's cradle of string symbolizing the action.
Here is the unusual collection of stories, each of which requires the storyteller to use string, nesting dolls, sand painting, drawings, or musical instruments. A piece of string can be manipulated into shapes to illustrate the story of an old weaver bothered by a mosquito, while a series of lines on a black-board make the tale of "The Wild Bird" come alive. Chosen from all over the world - Africa, Japan, America, Australia, central Europe - each story is accompanied by clear, step-by-step instructions as well as line illustrations, so even a beginner can become a skilled storyteller.
THE STORY VINE is an ideal and unique source book for librarians, teachers, storytellers, parents and grandparents - anyone who wants to captivate listeners with a well-told tale.
