Summary
"This book explores the value of sharing stories in ways that speak to our hearts and connect learning communities. It grounds this affective work in a discussion of five affective elements of story - healer, inspiration, clarifier, compassion, and connector - and includes narrative discussions, rationale, and contributions from influential educators and children's book creators along with tons of book recommendations and suggestions for direct classroom and library connections"--, Provided by publisher
