Each activity helped drive the story home.Review from Best Apps for KidsSo, what is a Traditional Storyteller? It's someone who has mastered the art of telling a story so well that the words come to life and transform themselves into pictures in a child's imagination. It's the way we've learned for millennia and it's absolutely captivating.It's also highly educational. Childrens early knowledge of stories is one of the most important indicators of later educational achievement. With the Traditional Storyteller you can access the very best traditional storytellers on your iPad, iPhone or iPod whenever and wherever you like. This app features the new UK National Storytelling Laureate, Katrice Horsley and tells the classic Russian tale of an old farmer who needs all the help he can get to pull out a giant turnip.All the Traditional Storyteller apps feature a master storyteller talking directly to the child. No gimmicks, no sound effects, just the storyteller enrapturing the child through the expressive use of words, gestures, facial expressions and direct eye contact.As well as the story, there are three games within the app that have been developed by teachers and use proven classroom techniques to develop childrens listening, understanding, speaking and literacy.
