As many of you know, my passion for stories stemmed from sitting crouched in front of the radio, listening to the BBC Children’s Story Hour. Later, my gentle Irish father continued to fan the flame as he fed me tales of fairies, banshees, and leprechauns. Using my experience as a teacher, narrator of books for the blind, picture book author, and storyteller at an inner-city school, I enjoy sharing my passion for stories with people of all ages. At the beginning of each month I will be sharing a video readaloud or storycast of some of my favorite children stories. I’ll pick a topic and a book, and provide a video readaloud with related activities and suggestions for follow-up discussions.
Enjoy these beautiful stories presented in an online video (viewable on a computer, tablet or smartphone). I will also be sharing additional thoughts about the monthly topic in my Blog. Please also feel free to share your love of stories and storytelling with me there.
