Draw and Tell Stories for Kids


DRAW AND TELL STORIES ARE GREAT FUN FOR KIDS. WE PROVIDE SEVERAL
VOLUMES OF ORIGINAL DRAW AND TELL STORIES BY STORYTELLER
AND FORMER CHILDREN'S LIBRARIAN, BARBARA FREEDMAN-DE VITO.

Draw and tell stories are special resources for children's librarians, teachers, child care professionals, homeschoolers,
parents, babysitters and kids themselves. They make use of an age-old storytelling technique where the storyteller
draws objects mentioned in a story while telling the story. By the time the draw and tell story has finished an entirely
new image has emerged on the paper, one which uses the various drawn bits in new ways and which results in a very
simple drawing of something which represents the topic of the draw and tell story. Draw and tells can be whimsical,
plus educational, and can stimulate children's imaginations and help them develop critical thinking skills. Draw and
tell stories are also easy to use and require no fancy materials. Draw and tell stories provide fun and entertainment
to young children during storytelling programs. Draw and tell stories can also stimulate children's interest in new
topics at school. Lastly, draw and tells add an extra touch of magic to parties or bedtime. Create instant fun anytime.

Our draw and tell stories page format makes it very easy for both draw and tell story novices and experienced
storytellers to successfully recreate draw and tell stories with young audiences. First, the name of each object
to be drawn is underlined in the text. Next to the text is a sketch of the object and an explanation of the role it
will play in the final drawing. To the right is a small sketch that shows how the overall picture is developing.
For each story we also provide a full page drawing that can be lightly traced in pencil onto a fresh sheet of
paper and used as a guide while performing each draw and tell story. While telling the story, the storyteller
simply draws over each part of the picture at the appropriate moment, using a dark marker. Thus each part
of the picture is perfectly drawn, perfectly proportioned, and in the proper position on the page so the final
large picture gradually emerges as if by magic.

HERE'S AN EMAIL THAT WE RECEIVED :
I just received the 4 volumes of Draw Me a Story and they are perfect. In the past, I have found books
with draw and tell stories, but they were so complicated it would take me weeks to memorize them.
Frankly, I just do not have the time. These are perfect... Thank you for saving the day with your books.
