‘The book is life affirming. All of its stories are about taking delight in creation. It is a journey into storytelling as well as story.’ —Hugh Lupton, award-winning Storyteller 

The Natural Storyteller is full of dynamic story seeds. When you open the book and read a story seed, you plant it in yourself, unleashing courage, creativity and love of nature. True stories of environmental heroines and heroes, botanical tales of living trees. Stories gleaned from the treasures of world traditions, but re-visioned for today’s child and told with great energy and panache. Adventures between birds, animals and people. Fairytales from the forest and true tales of sea, earth and sky. Some so good readers will retell them at once. Shared at bedtime or around the campfire under the stars, these stories inspire wonder and service for Mother Earth. Here is a handbook for the natural storyteller, with story maps, brain-teasing riddles, story skeletons and adventures to make a tale your own; a vibrant invitation to embrace a world of stories all about nature, animals and plants – and our relationship with them.

Purple Dragonfly Book Award First Place badgeGeorgiana Keable shows through a range of techniques – sometimes the power of the story alone – how to interpret, re-tell and pass these stories on for the future. This diverse collection of stories will nurture active literacy skills, and help form an essential bond with nature. The Natural Storyteller recently won first place in the Green Books/Environmental category of the Purple Dragonfly Book Awards.
