Brain Child
Tillywig Award Winner 2017

Redleaf Press
$29.95
Adults

This marvelously fresh and insightful book places story retelling front and center as an educational tool through which a host of essential skills can be promoted in young children: enhanced vocabulary, communication, and comprehension skills, improved conceptual thinking, social-emotional development, numbers, STEM skills, and more! The book is carefully structured in two parts, the first of which delves into key concepts and benefits of story retelling. Part 2 elaborates on how to implement story retelling with preschoolers and provides strategies with which teachers can easily integrate such activities into their everyday classroom routines. These two main sections are subdivided into four well-organized chapters apiece and loaded with real-world examples that make the material easy to absorb and apply. Cover to cover, it's an enjoyable, highly instructive read that paves the way for teachers to help young students get the most out of the story retelling experience.
