Synopses & Reviews
Volume IV in the Draw Me a Story series contains twelve fun draw and tell stories on topics such as fairies, lions, magic, pirates, and yo-yos. Each story includes clear instructions and traceable drawings, plus an informative guide to using this lively and time-honored storytelling technique. Draw and Tell stories are simple stories for young children. These tales are very easy to use and require no special materials or experience. As each story is told, its characters and objects are sketched onto a single sheet of paper, while children look on. These simple elements build up on the drawing until, by the time the story ends, a composite picture representing the subject of the story has emerged, much to the children's delight. This form of storytelling is great for parents, teachers and children's librarians. Author Barbara Freedman-De Vito has been creating and using Draw and Tell stories for many years in her work as a children's librarian, freelance storyteller, teacher, and workshop leader.
