How To Tell A Story: #HowToTellaStory Week Is here!


We've been counting down the days for the past two weeks but How To Tell a Story week is finally here! Alyson Beecher from Kid Lit Frenzy and I are thrilled to be celebrating this awesome writing resource that is sure to get kids' imaginations going and their words flowing. 

Watch the video below to find out more about How To Tell a Story brought to you by Workman by author Daniel Nayeri and illustrator Brian Won. They so aptly describe it as "1 Book + 20 Story Blocks = A Million Adventures". You'll see just how many stories comes from this imaginative tool. 

We have a whole week of celebrations plan and an exciting way for you and your students to join in on the fun! Stop in to see How To Tell a Story in action and to hear from author Daniel Nayeri and illustrator Brian Won.
