Presenter(s)/Discussion Leader(s):

Ryan Racette, Storyteller


An in-depth view of children's literature, its role in library programming, and what importance it plays in children's development will be taken at this program. You'll learn the tricks to tell fun, exciting, engrossing stories, learn new ways to expand the stories, and which stories tell those subtle lessons so important to growing children. After this workshop you will have a better understanding of which stories to tell with a book list specially made to help librarians.
