Five types of participation stories are discussed: (1) stories in which children participate verbally; (2) stories in which children respond to story cues with appropriate actions; (3) song stories in which children sing and perform actions mentioned in the songs; (4) stories for which the storyteller completes an arts and crafts project while telling the story or which lead to an art activity for children; and (5) holiday-related stories. For each type of story, the guide offers a sample story and lists a number of suggested story books, indicating how a storyteller can make use of each one. Also provided are a discussion of the value of participation stories, general suggestions for their use, and a bibliography of relevant professional materials. (GT)
