Preschool Storytelling in the SILS Library

Story Squad provided a storytime for the E. O. Young Jr. Elementary school from Middleburg, NC.  The children were treated to a Russian folktale about Grandfather Bear, a Jewish folktale that explains how things can always get worse than they currently are, and an authored picture book The Lion and the Little Red Bird by Elisa Kleven.  What a delightful group of children: good listeners, active participants, and creative thinkers.  One child gave storyteller, Brian Sturm, a run for his money.  After the stories were done, Mr. Brian commented, “you are the youngest college students I have ever seen!”  Having a different opinion of her future career goals, one little girl raised her hand and, when called upon, announced, “When I grow up, I’m going to be a doughnut!”  Now there’s imagination for you!
