Creative Storytelling: Building Community/Changing Lives

Jack Zipes, Author Routledge $32.95 (280p) ISBN 978-0-415-91272-3
Storytelling at all grade levels delights both children and their teachers, and this manual will undoubtedly be useful to teachers. Zipes describes his own ventures in classroom storytelling and outlines the process for teachers to follow. Particularly interesting are the variations of fairy tales that Zipes has researched. Without being overly scholarly, he whets the appetite, allowing teachers to develop their material according to time and interest. Zipes also includes useful material on the structure of fairy tales, as well as other types of stories such as the utopian tale and the myth. His final chapter gives suggestions for further reading that will extend the teacher's understanding of storytelling. A good ""Notes and Sources"" section and an extensive bibliography complete this concise and very useful aid to storytelling at all levels of the classroom. For academic collections.--Nancy E.
