December 21, 1969, Appleton Post-Crescent
What better time of the year than Christmas to have had a conference devoted to story time for children?  Christmas is rife with storytelling opportunities. At least in this day and age, storytelling seems to be a dying art and how many other venues are there where kids are exposed to someone telling them a story than at the library or in schools?  Sure, we read books to our kids at bedtime, and there's the occasional experience of a guide telling us something of note during a museum trip, perhaps.  But too often our default position has become the isolated one-on-one experience in front of a computer, TV, or tablet. Few of us have forgotten the magic of sitting in a group, while being told an engaging story, be it in Kindergarten or at the library.
