Reviews

"A storyteller and teacher of storytelling, de Las Casas introduces three methods of using the Japanese art form that combines storytelling, drama, and visual arts in classrooms. Then she presents her version of 25 stories from Asia that can be used with the methods." - Reference & Research Book News "A storyteller herself, the author has reintroduced this art form in her school residencies and recommends it for children in second through sixth grade. After giving practical information on beginning a Kamishibai program, she provides 25 Asian folktales, with source notes, that can be performed in this style. Since each scene needs to be illustrated, a variety of staff members can be involved in the project, including art, social-studies, and language-arts teachers. Chow's small line drawings capture the spirit of each story, giving children a place to start their own illustrations. Some black-and-white photographs show the artwork used in various stories but not the faces of the children involved. Just the thing for librarians looking for ways to collaborate with teachers, this book makes Kamishibai story theater look like fun." - School Library Journal
