Storytelling!

A few shots from Monday and Tuesday:




A tale of tales!



Grace played the wood xylophone for a story.


Clayton helped with set-up.


Talking about Anansi and the time he stole all the wisdom in the world. The thumb piano adds a nice touch to the story and introduces children to a different instrument. This program included several Anansi stories; since the libraries' theme this summer is bugs, Anansi the spiderman is a natural. I tell the kids this guy is the original spiderman. He doesn't wear a red suit or climb tall buildings, but he's very tricky!


Another Anansi story about how spiders got their thin middles.

This has been a fun program, with so many story possibilities. I've only scratched the surface (with stories of mosquitoes, fleas and such, maybe I'm playing on words here!).

You are punny! I was going to play the tales/tails card, but you bet me to it, you wordsmith, you! And you also found the "scratched the surface" one! Ah, well. I wouldn't expect any less. Looks like it was a great session, and the kids were very into it!

Oh, we did have fun! I wish I could explain the rush that comes with storytelling. It's magic to watch people join in and play.
