What the Festival contributes:

Supporting youth storytellers …

The Festival placed storytelling resource book collections at all City and County Recreation Centers and Playgrounds. These books are used by the children to select suitable stories for telling. They are especially helpful for children who do not have a library within easy walking distance and who may have little or no book resources at home. (This also aids in the development of reading interest and literacy skills for these children.) There are collections of ready-to-tell stories appropriate for children in inner city settings who may have less “world experience” and coaching/support from parents.A professional storytelling coach visits recreation centers to help leaders and their young storytellers polish their storytelling performances. This teller helps the children better refine their performances and provides them with personal contact with a quality teller.
