About Storytelling
Storytelling is telling stories–without using a book. It's an ancient art form that predates libraries, and books, and writing. 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."
