Book Notes :: Show Me a Story

It is a rainy, gray day in Massachusetts, my younger daughter has a day off of school and I’m reminded that we are entering the season of long damp days.  In preparation, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my new educational craft book, Show Me a Story, with you!  It is a curriculum rich book with projects and activities that nurture children’s natural inclination to tell their own imaginative stories and it is meant to be an inspiring companion for anyone who does creative work with children. With 40 creative projects and activities, my hope is that it will help to entertain children as well as spark their creative minds.

So far, it has won four awards including a Dr. Toy 2012 Best Picks and a 2012  Family Choice award.  Oh my! Very exciting. I’d love to hear what all of you lovely readers you think! If you would like to peek or learn more, you can find more information here.

I’m off to get cozy on the couch with my daughter and a pile of Story Stones.  Then, we’re off to an afternoon of disco roller skating. Does it get any better than that?

Happy day!

    Last night I left my home feeling like I had stagnated in my art and creativity, that I had not become the artist that I should have been. There was some creative element missing! Well, I stumbled upon this book at a store, and it was just what I needed! It helped reinforce my belief that the best art has a story behind it, and that the best artists are found among children. A child’s creative endeavors are the very essence of art, a raw expressive power which I’ve acknowledged in my head, but haven’t yet taken to heart. I don’t have kids of my own, but feel I’d do well to consider children as my most relevant “critics” so to speak. I appreciate this book, with its admirable priorities and honest enjoyment of shared inventiveness.

    Hey, glad I saw this on Pinterest! I work with a lot of children and know the benefit of having props for stories. I am always looking for great ideas and I am so glad I stumbled upon yours. I bought it right away on Amazon! Thanks for your dedication to children & literature!
