The Bulletin Storytelling Review: Volume I. Recommend-only Reviews of Storytelling Audio- and Videotapes, Prepared by the Staff of "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books."
Del Negro, Janice M., Ed.; Stevenson, Deborah, Ed.
Designed to be a tool for selection and collection development, this first volume of "The Bulletin Storytelling Review" contains 162 recommend-only reviews of storytelling audio- and videotapes produced between 1990 and 1996. This book provides a compendium of material not regularly reviewed in other publications. Tapes by storytellers such as Joe Bruchac, Len Cabral, Donald Davis, Barbara McBride-Smith, J.J. Reneaux, and Laura Simms are reviewed in a format like "The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books," a monthly review journal of books for youth. The titles are arranged alphabetically by storyteller, and each review includes the price, distributor, and grade level. The book concludes with ordering information for each distributor and an index that allows readers to search for tapes by type of story or possible uses. (RS)
