This May we follow two children and their new friend, a very large bird from a faraway place. The bird is lost and the children will try to help him find his way back home.
The boy and girl live in a castle that was long ago abandoned by the last residents when a dragon inhabited the basement and apparently chased everyone away. Don't you wonder what might happen next?
New this month! Download and print the 4x6 postcard images from the May Tale!
Inside the May Tale you will find the Starter Tale which you may choose to read once at the beginning or each day that you are telling your Tales or anything in between. You will also find 12 little prompt cards. You may print them out or use them on your device. Either way you will find many different paths to travel and characters to meet along the way - however many YOU choose!
You may end up picking each of the cards more than once allowing for different things to happen each time or to add on to what you've told before. One of the best things to do if you are just starting out on your journey as storyteller is to focus on details - details of the physical surroundings, such as, objects in your tale, smells in the air, temperature or sounds. And then go from there and enjoy yourself! The children will have many ideas that will surprise and delight you as well :)
As always, let me know if you have any thoughts or questions at all by contacting me here.
Thank you and Happy Storytelling!
