Story starters take storytelling to a whole new level!

Oral storytelling is an ancient and intimate tradition between the storyteller and their audience and has probably been around for as long as human language itself. The storyteller and the listeners are physically close, often seated together in a circle. Storytelling creates a personal bond between the teller and the audience; connections are made and relationships develop.

My story starter sets have grown out of a desire to return to these traditions.
I have been an early childhood teacher for over 20 years and I know how fun storytelling is for children. Not only that, it encourages them to use their imagination and creativity as well as develop early literacy and numeracy skills by retelling familiar stories and making up their own.

This set contains ten pieces and comes in a handmade felt bag to keep all the pieces safe.
Handmade from MDF (approx. 5cm in diameter), paper, non-toxic PVA glue.
Not suitable for children under 3 years old.

Illustrated by NZ artist, Rebecca Gibbs especially for 'Once upon a story'.
