"Telling tales provides good fodder for the telling but hopefully it will also encourage families to celebrate their own stories -- the ones that bind generations together." -- St Albert Gazette, Nov 26 2003.
"From simple systems such as keeping a recipe file of story ideas, to the process of retelling stories in order to develop their true meaning, the authors remind us that story telling is an art accessible to anyone with the desire to share stories and the gumption to try." Nancy Jo Cullen, Alberta Views.
"The authors of Telling Tales: Storytelling in the Family have created a volume that is at once highly informative and entertaining. This book is a useful compendium of information about storytelling, written especially for parents who want to explore the magic of "tales" with their children. The expertise and experiences of the authors are shared with charm and rich humour." Kathryn McNaughton, Resource Links.
"In Telling Tales, de Vos, Harris, and Barker Lottridge write convincingly of the power of storytelling to secure an individual's foothold in the family. Stories convey knowledge of family heritage within a framework of individual human experience, and bring humour, understanding, and healing to present relationships, particularly those between parents and children. The authors remind the reader. . . of the creative, intimate partnership that exists between parent and child as both engage in the imaginative construction of images and meaning." -- Ann Patteson (Queen's University), Canadian Journal of Education, Vol. 27, No. 1 (2002)
"Three professsional storytellers collaborate to explain the power and use of storytelling in family life. They cover all aspects of the form--from how to develop a story about your own family to universal myths and legends." -- Alison Gzowski, The Globe and Mail
"Telling Tales is a primer for would-be storytellers and begins with some great folk tales, including tales from other cultures. Most will be familiar, because good stories cross cultural boundaries, but the reading of them will bring a warm flash of memory to your mind.. Telling Tales provides good fodder for the telling but hopefully it will also encourage families to celebrate their own stories -- the ones that bind generations together." -- Susan Jones, St. Albert Gazette
"Highly recommended reading -- especially for aspiring storytellers wanting to draw upon their own wealth of family stories, personalities, anecdotes, folklore, songs and poetry." The Bookwatch
". we all secretly admire those friends who can transform the most banal of quotidian happenstance into epic narratives.. In accordance with the principles of storytelling--i.e., that you should demonstrate a point in narrative rather than explicitly state it--Telling Tales is replete with anecdotes from the three authors as they apprehended the craft for themselves." -- Jay Smith, VueWeekly
"Sometimes I think that one of the best-kept secrets is the power of the story.. Three of Canada's most outstanding storytellers have contributed to this welcome revision of the first edition.Telling Tales is highly recommended for all school and public libraries as well as university collections and will be of interest to adults including parents, storytellers, and those interested in Family Studies." -- Lorraine Douglas, CM Magazine
