About Storytelling
  • Storytelling is telling stories--without using a book.
  • It's an ancient art form that predates libraries, and books, and writing.  
  • It's not necessarily for children!
  • Traditional-style storytelling creates unique images in the mind of each listener.
According to the National Storytelling Network, "storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. In storytelling, the listener imagines the story."
