'Children appear to know the importance of storytelling as if by instinct. From a very early age their play takes the form of story; sometimes they term their story play "pretend." ...They delight in using what comes to hand; they are small bricoleurs who make barbecues or bowls out of sticks of wood, or who fashion snowballs that make noise and need to be hushed, or who build tents or caves with a blanket...Mallan's book is an important contribution to our understanding of how story works and of how storytelling functions as a social, political, and educative activity.'

Professor Roderick McGillis, University of Calgary, Canada

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
