If you want to tell more stories in the classroom but lack the confidence to do so... If you need guidance finding stories that are good to get children thinking... If you like using stories in your teaching but want to get more from them than the moral at the end... Once Upon an If is the book for you! In his brand new book, award-winning author Peter Worley provides a comprehensive guide to everything a would-be storyteller needs, including how to bring a story to life, tips on how to memorise a story and improvise descriptions, and techniques for using tone, movement and timing to engage and involve the children in your class. Once Upon an If also comprises a treasury of stories, new and old, written especially to get a young audience thinking actively about the deeper issues that lie behind and within the tales. Guidance notes, lesson plans and activity questions are included with every story and there is a companion website including extra resources for you to use on your interactive whiteboard. Once Upon an If draws on Peter's ten years of experience as a philosophy teacher, trainer and storyteller to help any teacher place stories and storytelling where they should be - back at the heart of teaching.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tell me a story!" is a perennial plea, and we are all of us the richer for that. This book shows clearly why. * Anne Fine, second Children's Laureate *
Peter's book almost hijacked my day. Week. I resisted the multiple temptations of the contents pages...sort of. It was a challenge: sections full of shiny things calling out, "Read me! Try me out! Have a think about me! * Mike Fleetham, Education consultant and creator of thinkingclassroom.co.uk *
The royal road to better thinking lies through philosophy, and Peter Worley is guiding whole generations of better thinkers along it. He is doing a great service wonderfully well. * A. C. Grayling, Master of the New College of the Humanities *
a captivating exploration of the art of storytelling...it should have a place in every good teacher's toolkit. * Teach Secondary *
