The Storyteller #Giveaway #BacktoSchool

I LOVE reading to my children. One of my favorite times of day is right before my son goes down for his nap and right before my daughter's bedtime. I try to read aloud to both of them at least 30 minutes each day. This summer, my daughter and I have been passing the time with a very informal "school". We're learning about various countries with the read the world summer book club.

For the continent of Africa, I created lesson plans based on The storyteller.
Long, long ago, like a pearl around a grain of sand, the Kingdom of Morocco formed at the edge of the great, dry Sahara. It had fountains of cool, refreshing water to quench the thirst of the desert, and storytellers to bring the people together.

But as the kingdom grew, the people forgot the dangers of the desert, and they forgot about the storytellers, too. All but one young boy, who came to the Great Square for a drink and found something that quenched his thirst even better: wonderful stories. As he listened to the last storyteller recount the Endless Drought, and the Glorious Blue Water Bird, he discovered the power of a tale well told.
We enjoyed the book so much, that we decided to have a giveaway for it as part of "Oh! The places you'll go! Back to school giveaway hop hosted by The Kids Did It & The Mommy Island. Enter via Rafflecopter, and be sure to check out all the other giveaways in the hop.
