Storytelling predates reading. Storytelling is a vibrant tradition in nearly every culture on earth. And of course, storytelling serves as a perfect medium for educating young children and early readers.

Specifically intended for elementary school and public librarians, teachers, storytellers, and camp counselors, Tell Along Tales : Playing with Participation Stories contains 25 adapted tales from Czechoslovakia, Germany, Ireland, Korea, Norway, Spain, and West Africa that are appropriate for kindergarten through sixth grade students. These stories are linked to standards and are full of fun audience participation, making them perfect for the library, classroom, camp, or home. The book will illuminate the best methods for telling a tale, describe various types of audience participation and how to encourage it, identify elements in a story that provide opportunity for participation, explain when to include audience participation, and share the author's proven audience management techniques.
Dianne de Las Casas was an author and award-winning storyteller who presented programs and provided educator/librarian training, workshops, and artist residencies.
