The Natural Storyteller – Available on Amazon
This book is a seed packet, full of dynamic story seeds. When you open the book and read a story seed, you plant it in yourself, unleashing courage, creativity and love of nature. True stories of environmental heroines and heroes, botanical tales of living trees. Stories gleaned from the treasures of world traditions, but re-visioned for today’s child and told with great energy and panache. Adventures between birds, animals and people. Fairytales from the forest and true tales of sea, earth and sky. Some so good readers will retell them at once. Shared at bedtime or around the campfire under the stars, these stories inspire wonder and service for Mother Earth. Here is a handbook for the natural storyteller, with story maps, brain-teasing riddles, story skeletons and adventures to make a tale your own.
