Resource Details


“Storytelling is a distinctive and universal human activity, one of the means by which we make sense of our world and communicate our understanding to others: both orally, and in written forms; through character, narrative, setting and symbol; within and between communities and generations.  It is therefore integral to our learning, and to our relationship with the world.”  Tide~
