Book: Storytelling with children by Nancy Mellon
Storytelling with children by Nancy Mellon is a wonderful guide book to becoming a confident and inspiring storyteller.
Children love family storytelling and it is a vital part of Waldorf Education, with stories told from the heart. Stories have the power to enrich, awaken wonder and fire the imaginations of children. They are also a wonderful way to celebrate special occasions including birthdays and festivals with your children. Nancy Mellon shows you how to spin golden tales of wonder that will delight and nourish your child and your family.
Inspiring us all to be storytellers, this book teaches you the art of storytelling with practical methods, tips and resources to enrich your storytelling skills and style and build your own stories. This valuable Waldorf parenting handbook covers exploring traditional fairytales, folklore and legends, creating a listening space and using the day’s events and rhythms to make stories. It shows you how to bring your family stories and personal experiences to life, transform old stories and make up new ones, and how to learn and tell stories by heart using pictures, inner theatre, walk-about and song.
