'The best stories are told by the ones who know us deeply. And if you lack confidence, then here is loads of help' Steve Biddulph Storytelling is one of the oldest and most essential skills known to humankind - it is also one of the best ways to help us raise healthy, well-adjusted kids, teaching them how to manage their emotions, build empathy and navigate life's complexities. In cultivating a meaningful bond between storyteller and listener, it builds intimacy and trust between parent and child. In this delightful book, early childhood educators Silke Rose West and Joseph Sarosy distill the key ingredients of storytelling into a surprisingly simple method that can make anyone an expert storyteller. Their intuitive technique uses events and objects from your child's daily life to make storytelling easy and accessible. By shifting the focus from crafting a narrative to strengthening your relationship with your child, this book will awaken skills you never knew you had. Complete with practical advice, helpful prompts, and a touch of science to explain how stories enrich our lives in so many ways, How to Tell Stories to Children is a must-read for parents, grandparents and teachers.
