Circle Time Storytelling
This page is intended to provide additional resources for readers of my articles on telling stories to kids. In connection with Part 1 - Learning a Stock of Easy-to-Tell Stories, I have provided a list of some good books of different types of stories, with links to allow you to purchase these books through Circle Time's association with I also have some links for finding free story texts on the internet. Additional resources will be added from time to time as I come across them or in connection with future articles in this series. I hope that these articles and other resources will help you to enjoy hours of quality time telling stories with your kids.

Books of Different Types of Stories
Clicking the link next for a book will take you to a page on the website with price and availability information for that book. From that page, you can choose whether you want to order the book or not. The Penguin and Puffin paperbacks are generally much cheaper than the illustrated books, and are well suited to a parent who wants to read and learn the stories and then later tell the stories to the children. The illustrated books, on the other hand, can serve double duty as a story-source for the parent and as a picture book for reading to the child.
