It's fun to see that with new kids, old stories still work.For her Kindergarten classes, storyteller Mary D. helps Joe the Bear and Sam the Mouse get together. Again. And once again, they are going to eat ice cream at 3:00!
The Bloomington Storytellers' Guild was formed in 1974 to help keep the ancient tradition of oral storytelling alive. In addition to being a means for sharing classic folk and fairytales of our times (and times past), storytelling encourages use of the imagination, listening skills, and an interest in reading.
Members of the Guild meet about once a month to share new stories and plan storytelling events. Membership is open to anyone with a love for stories, a desire to tell them -- and ten bucks for the registration fee.
