…you've come to the right place!
Here at the Kids' Storytelling Club, we have been working hard to improve our website. One big change you'll notice is that we've remodeled our clubhouse. This allows us to put much more online to help young storytellers everywhere.
We've also upgraded our technology to be mobile-friendly so you can easily get our storytelling help anywhere from any device.
What all this means is, if you are…
…you've come to the right place!
In Our Newly Remodeled Clubhouse
In the clubhouse, you'll find many ideas of crafts to make, stories to tell, and places to tell them, and expert help. There's as much on these pages as we might put into a beginner's booklet. And this clubhouse “web-book” is always available, instantly from any device, and may continue to grow as we occasionally add to it. Plus, you'll find free downloads for your personal use, so it's not just one booklet, but more!
In addition to general advice and ideas, you'll find specific help such as:
Our Featured Club Project:

Don't Have Time to Tour the Clubhouse Today?
Don't worry! We've invited guests and brought some of our “story dust” out here onto the clubhouse front porch so we can share stories with everyone who stops by.
Our Current Guest:
Bobbi Shupe, the Creator of our Dragons
When you tell a story, you become a storyteller, part of a long tradition of people who have shared stories to teach or inform, to inspire or convince, to entertain or amuse, or just to plain have fun. We hope the information, ideas, and advice here at the Kids' Storytelling Club helps you create your own stories to tell and helps you find places to tell them in your everyday life. In addition to what you find here online at the Club, you can get more sample stories, creative advice, and detailed craft instructions in our digital and print books, available in our bookstore. Tell a story! Join the fun, today!
