Would you like to know more about what your child thinks and feels?

Many researches feel encouraging a child to be a storyteller is an effective instrument for teachers, parents, and adults to learn more about the child.  What story a child chooses and how he chooses to tell the story are insightful indicators of what a child thinks and feels at a particular point in time.  The safety of the story allows a child to express feelings she might otherwise fear or be unable to articulate.  “Storytellers Favorite Fables” is a great way to introduce storytelling to children. In this clip, storyteller Diane Ferlatte is telling the American folktale, “Crocodile and Hen”.
