Vic Guild Tellers spend many hours of the year working with very small children and their families. Keeping the stories, rhymes and songs alive and passing them on to the next generation, enriching young minds linguistically and conceptually and of course having lots of fun ... its not such a bad job!
Here is a clip of seasoned teller and author Gael Cresp recording an episode of Storytime for Channel 31. Hosted by Tall Ted, Storytime is designed for preschool children. Check the Tall Ted website for times and details Tall Ted has a fabulous website with loads of information and activities for small people.
Storytime is being shown in Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria with other states soon to follow. Imparja in the Northern Territory and a community channel in Canada have also expressed an interest in Storytime. Channel 31 say that the show has proved to be very popular and would like another series.
