David Holt is a fabulous storyteller. His anthology, called "Ready to
Tell Tales" is a compilation of stories from the world over. MANY funny
ones with EXcellent voices. He visited our school once, and he was
fantastic. I have been reading to kids from his anthology for years. I
love to read to kids (elementary) as they are coloring, or once they
really know whta they are doing and don't need much help from me, just
work time. Reading helps to settle them and focus them, and they love
it. I am really a ham with reading aloud, and sometimes I catch them
stopping to watch me. I tell them that they have to pretend I'm a
record player, and that if they watch the record player instead of
working, it stops. The never get tired of this book, and they know so
many of the stories almost by heart now. It's truly interactive.
