What Kind of Book is The Storyteller

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.75 / 7.0

This book is super long, so perhaps best for children with a little longer attention span, but is beautifully written and illustrated and conveys a powerful message about the importance of storytelling.
