A Story toTell shows how narrative--and particularly oral storytelling--can be used to bring literacy to life for primary school children. This ancient art provides models and structures for teachers to support children's understanding and use of narrative and reveals fascinating insights into other times and cultures. The authors relate how teachers develop their own storytelling skills and the abilities of children to share and retell personal and traditional tales. In A Story toTell performers, teachers and students describe how stories from all parts of the world can be enjoyed, discussed, adapted and performed to develop language and literacy learning. They explore the use of stories in humanities, religious education and other areas of the curriculum. The role of visiting professional storytellers is examined, with examples of their work with children and teachers in the UK and Ireland. And the student storytellers' adaptation and retelling of Asian, African and European tales from their own childhood are fascinating and inspiring.

In 1914, the British commercial printers Wills & Hepworth embarked on a new publishing venture: the Ladybird Series, a series of cheap and cheerful full-color illustrated children’s books aimed at the growing popular market. The series continued through the early days of World War II, and, in 1940, they published the best seller Bunnykin’s Picnic Party, leading to several decades more of huge sales of Ladybird titles on a wide range of subjects. On the centennial of the publication of the first books in the series, The Ladybird Story offers the first history of the venture, from its shaky beginnings through interwar success and beyond. The book features a comprehensive bibliography of books published under the Wills & Hepworth imprint, as well as plenty of illustrations from volumes across the series.

The works of D.H. Lawrence have always generated critical controversy. From the early prosecution of The Rainbow (1915) to more recent disputes about feminist criticism, Lawrence engenders strong feelings, both for and against his writings. This reference chronicles the critical reception of his works. Included are reviews and essays on his novels, plays, short fiction, poetry, and letters and prose. The volume begins with a chronology of the major events in his publishing career and an introductory overview of the response to his writings. A selected bibliography concludes the work.
