Introducing an incredible storytelling package: a full-color, 144-page book paired with a collection of 20 six-sided, beautifully illustrated storytelling cubes that make it easy for any imaginative child (and that is every child) to start creating wonderful stories. The book is a guide to the principles of creative storytelling. It covers the essential elements like conflict, characters, motivation, dialogue, theme, and, of course, the climax.
As you turn the pages, you'll be prompted to roll the story blocks. The blocks are coded by color, each loosely associated with a part of speech. A simple exercise about motivation, for example, asks the reader to roll the blocks and find one red block (person or animal) "who wanted nothing more in this world than to" one green block (action). How to Tell a Story combines the surprising whimsy of Mad Libs with the compelling fun of storytelling cubes.
