PRAISE FOR THE POWER OF STORIES

"This beautifully written and wise book taps into a deep source, the spring of imagination. If you have anything to do with children, buy this book. If you have anything to do with yourself, buy it as well." --Matthew Barton, New View
 

'If you read no other book about the importance of storytelling and the power of stories, I would recommend buying this book ... The book contains many stories that you will be familiar with and some that may be new. It will offer you a new way of looking at rhymes and stories and why they form an essential part of development.'
- Early Years Educator

'This beautifully written and wise book... gives very helpful examples of certain stories particularly well-suited to different ages... If you have anything to do with children, buy this book. If you have anything to do with yourself, buy it as well.'
- New View

'This book is about nurturing children's imagination and consciousness by the means of stories, the author calls this Story Medicine, whereby ancient traditions used stories as a means of transformation and healing... This is a very important study of the role of stories in shaping our culture, reminding the reader of their central role.'
- Scientific and Medical Network Review
