Summary "Enrich your family life, connect with your children, and celebrate your ancestors by learning to tell family stories, folktales and nursery rhymes. Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family is a guide to the art of gathering and telling stories. Written by three renowned storytellers, Telling Tales includes personal stories, how-to tips and extensive resource lists." "Storytelling is relationship. Stories become the threads that bind a family. We all tell stories about our experiences and daily life. When we die, it is our stories that are remembered. Family stories remembered and shared help the family, and the individuals who comprise it, to survive and flourish."--Jacket.
