Thomas Doty – Storyteller

From the Children (11 of 11)


A few oral impressions from first graders typed up by their teacher, Waldport, Oregon, May, 2013....

"Today our class met a storyteller. Clearly it was awesome."

"He told us stories about dreaming. Is not something you try. It's something you do."

"First, he made funny faces in the stories. Next, he made funny voices in the stories. Last, he told three stories. All and all, he was the best storyteller ever!"

"He had a good character voice. The stories were amazing and we are going to do it all week. I can't wait to hear more stories."

"We got to hear a story about a really, really dark village. The village had completely no sun. Then a snake made a sun by dreaming. Then he told us about a lost baby. After he started looking for the baby, he grew up. Last, there was a story about a bear wanting to fly. Then suddenly he wasn't there. That's because he turned into stars. So clearly we met a funny storyteller."
