Storytelling continues to be important when teaching children, even in this multi-media age. Movies, TV programs, DVDs, andvideo games are all passive entertainment. Storytelling has always engaged listerners' imagination and creativity, helping them become thinkers and contributors.

Storytelling, as an art form, is alive and well. Last summer over 650 professional storytellers from all over the USA and some foreign countries, members of the National Storytelling Network, gathered in Chicago for their annual conference to share their expertise and learn from one another.
