World Storytelling Day 2009

We Celebrated World Storytelling Day, with the After School Storytelling Club

The Super Sonic Celtic Guinea Pigs of Awesomeness!

Ten storytellers ranging in age from 8 to 12 years old preformed 
Stories for All Ages
We have been working very hard and eating lots of popcorn while we explore the art of storytelling.  We spent about 8 weeks having fun learning about story.  This was the first public performance for about half of the kids who participated, the other half have been telling stories for ~ a year.  We heard everything from the "Shepherd and the Wolf" to the "Coffin That Wouldn't Stop".  Everyone did a fantastic job!  We had about 40 in the audience.  It was wonderful to have such a great turnout, of family,  friends and storytime kids.
Thank you all to a job well done!

Remember Friday March 20th is World Storytelling Day, have you told someone a story today?


  1. how exciting that you are nurturing all these budding storytellers - an important contribution to keeping our love of the oral tradition alive.

  2. I just love how story brings people together, and builds community. It has been fun growing young storytellers as well as story listeners... you can't have one without the other. Thanks
