Need tales - just not Jen the Hen

21st January 2005 at 00:00
I enjoyed your article on storytelling. I couldn't agree more.

Somehow, six years of the so-called literacy hour seems to have lost the plot as far as storying is concerned.

There are such outstanding children's authors, illustrators as well as storytellers. Teachers are hidebound into reading Jen the Hen. Ugh!

Keep up the good work.
