     What is storytelling and Why tell stories?
‘In every language, in every part of the world story is the
fundamental grammar of thought and communication.’
                                                    Robert Fisher

“The story is told eye to eye mind to mind and heart to heart.”
                                     A Scottish traveller proverb

“Storytelling and its spinoffs can not only bring about the aims
 of C4E but also serve the pedagogic needs of EAL learners.”
                                                 Angela Rendall

Best of all there is the magic in sharing a story.
