The Story Vine

Anne Pellowski gives readers instructions to use a variety of methods to show and tell stories from around the world in this fascinating and informative collection.

The Story Vine is an unusual collection of stories that have been loved by youth and elders alike around the world, each of which requires the storyteller to use string, nesting dolls, sand painting, drawings, or musical instruments to help embellish the tale.

With stories from Africa, Japan, America, Australia, and Central Europe, each story is accompanied by clear, step-by-step instructions, as well as line illustrations, so even a beginner can grow into a skilled storyteller.

Anne Pellowski has put together an ideal and unique source book for anyone who wants to captivate listeners with a well-told tale, including librarians, teachers, storytellers, parents, and grandparents.
