Today, I'm honored to be a part of the blog tour for Emily Neuburger's new book, Show Me a Story.
Not only is this book amazing and Miss Emily super talented, but she's one of the most genuine and kind people you'll ever meet. I am fortunate to be able to call her a friend.
This book inspires the storyteller in us all. The projects are simple in design, but the possibilities boundless. The 4 year old story teller in my house, couldn't keep his hands off of it.
Since the weather has been so nice, we decided to go out for a Storytelling walk. The idea is to "mentally" collect items to later create a story with. For my little boy, physically collecting items to tell stories with is part of the fun as well.
We took along a bag, and some friends, and collected.
There were stories of troll homes along the way,
and at home, we drew and retold stories from the day.This book truly inspired me to look at the world around me and even if for but a few moments, get lost in an imaginary world. I have fond memories of creating these worlds as a child and look forward to sharing that experience with my own kids. This will be the guidebook to help lead us there.
