When reciting stories to the very young, those stories need to be performed, not just read out. Learn from one of Australia’s most popular and prolific children’s picture book authors, Aleesah Darlison, as she shares with you the techniques she’s learned to engage and excite young listeners during storytelling sessions.
Learn how to keep children focused and engaged, how to include them in the storytelling process, and how props and music can make your storytelling circles more dynamic. Get ready to romp, rollick and roar your way to storytelling success! Suitable for authors, illustrators, early childhood educators and teachers.
