A Collection for Parents
Author: Beatrys Lockie
This collection of classic tales includes advice on how to tell stories to children: how to establish a routine and create a mood; how to involve children and personalise your stories. The stories are suitable for children aged from three to seven years old.
Many are old favourites that are regularly told in kindergartens, nurseries and schools — tales about magical creatures and exotic animals as well as stories from everyday life. Many people say they cannot tell stories, but Beatrys Lockie is a firm believer that everyone can; it just takes a little practice.
