This is a book for anyone who tells stories-teachers, parents, and especially children's librarians. Although the storyteller must draw during the presentation, artistic ability is t necessary for success. All stories and poems in this collection of stories and poems with chalk-board drawings have been tested in library story hours and in visits to schools. Several are intended for the pre-kindergarten age group, and most are suitable for older children as well.
Phyllis Noe Pflomm is a graduate of Stephens College, Columbia, MO, and Barnard College. She is a children's librarian in the Dayton and Montgomery County (OH) Public Library system, where she tells stories, many of which are draw-and tell, to children of all ages.
