Stories to Tell to Children: 50 Stories With Suggestions for Telling

Stories to Tell to Children: 50 Stories With Suggestions for Telling / Sara Cone Bryant (original text, 1907) 

“This little story book came into being at the instance of my teaching friends all over this country. Their requests for more stories of the kind which were given in “How to Tell Stories to Children,” and especially their urging that the stories they liked, in my telling, should be set down in print, seemed to justify the hope that the collection would be genuinely useful to them. That it may be, is the earnest desire with which it is offered.

I hope it will be found to contain some stories which are new to the teachers and friends of little children, and some which are familiar, but in an easier form for telling than is usual. And I shall indeed be content if its value to those who read it is proportionate to the pleasure and mental stimulus which has come to me in the work among pupils and teachers which accompanied its preparation.”
