Storyteller Teacher Resource Books and CD-ROMs

Each anthology is supported by a teacher’s resource book written by Pie Corbett and CD-ROM with videos of storytellers telling their tales.

In the teacher’s book:

  • General guidance on how to tell a story
  • Activities for each story in the children’s anthology – getting to know each story through discussion, writing, drama, music or dance.
  • Speaking: guidance on how to tell each story aloud
  • Structure: a flow chart for each story
  • Telling to writing: ideas for adapting each story to make a new version

On the CD-ROM:

Let the children watch professional storytellers on the CD-ROM. Half the stories in the anthologies are told aloud by:

  • Pie Corbett
  • Taffy Thomas
  • Jane Grell
  • Xanthe Gresham

Each storyteller also tells his or her storytelling tips and thoughts.

Children’s Books

There are three children’s anthologies each containing about 15 traditional stories from around the world perfect for retelling. Each anthology contains some stories short enough to learn off-by-heart.

  • The Gingerbread Man and other stories for 4–7 year olds
  • Dragonory and other stories for 7–9 year olds
  • The Boy and the Tiger and other stories for 9–11 year olds

Each anthology is accompanied by an audio CD containing all the stories in the anthology read aloud by Pie Corbett, Xanthe Gresham or Taffy Thomas.
