Publisher Description

Storytelling is one of the oldest and most essential skills known to humankind, a timeless parenting tool that helps families celebrate life’s joys, navigate its challenges, and raise healthy, well-adjusted kids.

Stories help children manage their emotions, empathize with others, and better understand the complex world we live in. More importantly, storytelling cultivates a rich and meaningful bond between storyteller and listener, building intimacy and trust between parent and child.

In this delightful book, Silke Rose West and Joseph Sarosy—early childhood educators with thousands of storytelling hours between them—distill the key ingredients of storytelling into a surprisingly simple method that can make anyone an expert storyteller. Their intuitive technique uses events and objects from your child’s daily life to make storytelling easy and accessible. By shifting the focus from crafting a narrative to strengthening your relationship with your child, this book will awaken skills you never knew you had.

Complete with practical advice, helpful prompts, and a touch of science to explain how stories enrich our lives in so many ways, How to Tell Stories to Children is a must-read for parents, grandparents and educators.

  • “Humans understand the world primarily through stories, which means you can shape the world of the small people you love with just a bit of fancy and a lot of love.”

    - Bill McKibben, New York Times bestselling author
  • “The book is well written and deftly conveys its lessons to readers, avoiding preachiness as it argues that storytelling is a way to provide kids with the attention they crave. The authors are encouraging throughout…An informative and practical guide.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “This isn’t really a book about technique…Telling stories to children is a bonding, nurturing, embracing, and thoroughly natural thing for any adult to do. Silke and Joe invite you to claim your rich human legacy and experience the joy and satisfaction of telling stories, any stories, to the children in your life.”

    - Joe Hayes, bilingual storyteller and author of A Heart Full of Turquoise
