Storytelling is a very popular teaching strategy. It is used not just in Reading classes but also for fact-laden subjects like Science and Social Studies. This week’s featured Filipiniana book is Adarna’s Story telling manual for young children. Gomez and Sacris created this manual to provide “tips for effective storytelling as well as ideas for storytelling materials such as puppets, dioramas, and pop-up artwork.” The authors stressed that storytelling helps develop a child’s verbal communication skill, his imagination and decision-making.
Story telling manual for young children is published by Adarna House in 2000 and available at the GSLRC Filipiniana Section, F 027.6251 G14s.
