“Excerpt from The Storytellers: Six Months With the Storytellers’ Magazine “”When Roman education was at its best,”” writes Professor Edward Porter St. John, in his excellent little book on “”Stories and Storytelling,”” “”stories of their national heroes and statesmen, such as we find in Plutarch’s lives, formed one of the most important parts of the curriculum. How largely the Hebrew life was shaped by story a glance at the Old Testament will reveal. “”China, India, Arabia, Japan, honored the storyteller; they felt his charm and were molded by his magic. “”For centuries the stories of Homer formed the only literary content of education among the Greeks, and they kept their place through the succeeding years of culture that we hardly equal to-day.”” The importance of the story in the education of the young is just beginning to be realized. It is the one form of education which children always understand. To this fact more than any other perhaps is to be attributed the present widespread interest in Storytelling. Heretofore we have looked upon it merely as a form of entertainment, a means of “”keeping the children quiet.”” Now we are beginning to take it seriously, and can better understand what a great educationist meant when he said “”Good storytelling is the best intellectual qualification of the teacher.”” To all who take storytelling seriously this book wilt recommend itself.
