I bought this book as I really wanted to try out storytelling in key stage 2. It had been done in our school in ks1 and worked well. I used one of the example stories in my year 5 class. I told and retold the story and carried out some of the activities it suggested . The kids loved telling it and now can tell the story with me . They ask tell it everyday . The enjoyment alone is worth it but their storytelling and writing skills have improved too .

This is a great book for any teacher that wants to promote oral story telling in the classroom. Pie Corbett is brilliant and his ideas for story telling along with the associated activities are invaluable and easy to do in class. The stories in there are really good and easy to learn off by heart.
