It's true: I am a storyteller. I sit in front of large groups of children, numbering around 70, and try to instill values enfolded in entertainment. We sing, dance, and thrill to the adventures over crashing waves where the wild things are. Having done this for a few months now, I find myself sadly running low on material. I think possibly the following stories may teach some life lessons which are as important as anything you'll find in your typical library.
