Storytelling is relationship. Stories become the threads that bind a family. We all tell stories about our experiences and daily life. When we die, it is our stories that are remembered. Family stories remembered and shared help the family, and the individuals who comprise it, to survive and flourish. Storytelling within the family provides quality time; creating bonds, increasing listening skills, and fostering communication. Enrich your family life, connect with your children, and celebrate your ancestors by learning to tell family stories, folktales, and nursery rhymes. Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family is a fascinating guide to the art of gathering and telling stories. Written by three renowned storytellers, Telling Tales includes personal stories, how-to tips and extensive resource lists, and builds upon the success of the acclaimed first edition. Storytelling is contagious. Telling stories helps us make sense of what is happening around us and within ourselves. Stories are our powerful gift to the younger generation.

著者について (2003)

Gail de Vos, Merle Harris and Celia Barker Lottridge are internationally-known storytellers. Gail de Vos and Merle Harris are from Edmonton. Celia Barker Lottridge lives in Toronto.

Merle Harris has always been fascinated with the oral tradition and loved listening to stories. In 1972, as a new mother in a new country, she found herself remembering her childhood in Rhodesia and how African parents used storytelling rather than lecturing with their children, and falling back on this tradition to raise her sons.

Celia Barker Lottridge is the author of many award-winning children's books, several of them based on stories told in her family. As a storyteller she has performed at schools, libraries and festivals across Canada. For many years she was Director of the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program, a social service program for parents and young children based on the power of rhyme and story.
