Making Room for Everyone: More Stories for Building a Children's Chapel

Bill Gordh (Author) Daniel R. Heischman (Foreword by)


This volume shows that stories can reflect and represent the students that hear them.
Working with the same overall themes of his first book, Building a Children's Chapel: One Story at a Time, Bill Gordh presents a wide range of folktales from around the world, stories from different faith traditions, and some updates of the original volume. The stories are presented to be told aloud, complete with storytelling tips and musical suggestions for each. Thirty-five curated folktales and stories from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, African, Asian, Scandinavian, and Native American traditions support the values that many desire to instill in children. As an award-winning storyteller, banjoist, author, and educator, Bill Gordh offers a storytelling approach that honors both the source material and the children who listen.

Those who are engaged with the spiritual growth of children will find this book invaluable.

Age range: 3 - 8 years old, Grade Level: Preschool to 5th Grade
