Children as Storytellers

Mallan, Kerry M. (1991) Children as Storytellers. Primary English Teaching Association, Newtown, NSW.


Stories are meant to be told and share as a vital part of our cultural heritage. Children today are perhaps better read, and read to more, than previous generations. Yet schools have tended to neglect the oral tradition in favour of the written text. This book explores the place of storytelling in the classroom.

Impact and interest:

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.
