Bring the magic of storytelling into your child's life, using the everyday world around you. Lavishly endowed with over 100 original, hands-on activities for children aged three to ten, as well as dozens of cross-cultural stories, this book will help any parent kindle his or her child's imagination through the magic of the oral tradition. All the activities in the book are "pain-free," designed to fit into a family's usual day. Learn how to incorporate storytelling into doing household chores like washing dishes or taking out the garbage, how to use storytelling on a plane or car trip, and even use it to help with doing homework. Best of all, most of the activities require no props, no tools, no prolonged setup. Bringing the Story Home offers stories that parents can use for a multitude of real-life situations, addressing issues like a child's fears, learning to compromise, or the birth of a sibling. It also includes stories that emphasize generosity, compassion, cooperation, and self-esteem. In addition to folklore from our own and other cultures, it features a rich sampling of tales actually invented by children and their parents--stories that will inspire readers to invent their own.

Lisa Lipkin is a storyteller who has toured nationally and internationally. Her stories and articles have appeared in numerous publications. She lives in New York City.From Library Journal:
The oral tradition is an endangered one. Given the distractions of television, computers, and computer games, children are especially prone to self-containment. Offering over 100 activities, New York City-based storyteller Lipkin teaches parents how to incorporate stories into their three- to ten-year-olds' lives, thereby teaching family history, moral lessons, and a heightened sense of identity and belonging. Each of the eight chapters includes examples of stories and methods parents can use. Lipkin shows how to integrate storytelling into everyday activities, share family history, read a story, and create a story. Readers are also instructed in taking the scare out of ghost stories, retelling Bible stories, and recounting stories about childhood issues (e.g., a new sibling, fear of the dark) and those that reinforce positive behavior. This work's easy-to-do activities will lead parents to find yarns in ordinary events and spur their children's imaginations.
