I’m all about 3-D and hands-on learning; my philosophy is “Flat is boring!” That’s why I was thrilled when Guidecraft came out with this unique new product to make storytelling more hands-on and interactive. The Steve Light Story Boxes are perfect for encouraging oral language development and imagination in young children as well as developing retelling skills.
There are four different Story Boxes designed specifically to develop early language and retelling skills. I’ve mentioned the importance of re-telling before and how it is included in the new Common Core Standards.
The hand-painted resin characters are very detailed and the fabric hand puppet is sure to entice any young child to retell the story.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary story box to review, I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are 100% my own.
