“This is the book we’ve been waiting for!”

Out now!

My new book, Storytelling and Story-Reading in Early Years, published by Jessica Kingsley, is now out.

It’s described as an ” essential guide” that ” provides the tools to get the best out of oral storytelling and story-reading sessions, which can significantly improve young children’s early communication and literacy.”

Here’s a comment on it that I very much appreciate:

“This is the book we’ve been waiting for! Everyone who believes that stories lie at the heart of young children’s learning now has this splendid resource to draw upon. The author distills a lifetime of sharing stories into nine practical chapters. Which story? Read or told? Learnt from memory? All this and much more, recounted with energy, enthusiasm and love.” ~ Dr Hilary Minns, University of Warwick.

    Oh Mary — love the book — yes essential guide and everything that Dr Hilary Minns says — and for me personally it was revisiting those first workshops in London.. It’s hearing your voice in every page and recognising the love of stories and the belief in the importance of stories for children and well – everyone — if they will listen . Thank you for writing this wonderful book Mary — Thank you for all the stories. Jeanxx
