FOREWORD


This story-hour material was first published in the Monthly Bulletin of
the St. Louis Public Library in 1914 and was later reprinted in pamphlet
form. It has been slightly revised for the present edition but the form
and viewpoint has not been changed and most of the notes remain as
originally written for the St. Louis Public Library Staff.

The editor has made no attempt to compile a complete handbook on
story-telling but has merely brought together in uniform printed form,
story lists and programs for story hours as they have been used to meet
the needs in the various divisions of the Children's Department of the
St. Louis Public Library. No claim is made to originality, but the
editor assumes all responsibility for the form and standard of the lists
as here presented.

The aim has been to keep the lists brief and to give short, practical
outlines which may be extended.

Since library story-telling is directed primarily toward inspirational
reading, the selections listed are chiefly from literary sources. A
wealth of material in the form of biography and history has not been
included, because books in those classes have been fully indexed by
subject in the library catalogues. For example: a list of Christmas
stories has been included among the lists for special days, but none has
been given for Washington's Birthday or Independence Day. There is,
however, a list of patriotic and historical narrative poems.

Further explanations will be found in the short paragraphs preceding
each list, and in the index to titles of stories.

_Director of Work with Children_.

SUGGESTIONS FOR STORY HOURS FOR LITTLE CHILDREN.


The following programs for story hours for the
little children are suggestive only. It is desirable
that the best folk tales be repeated as often as the
children desire, and that poems should be read or
recited in connection with the stories where there is
a response. The little children should never be held
longer than half an hour, and twenty minutes is
better. The stories to be told together are numbered
1 and 2. This grouping may be changed and additions
may be made from books which have been
duplicated freely in the juvenile book collections,
but the selection should be kept to the standard of
this list. Also, it is not required that the groups
of stories should be used in the order listed.

STORIES FOR OLDER CHILDREN.

The cycle story hours in the St. Louis Public Library
are planned to interest older boys and girls in
great works of literature and to inspire them to read
along one line for several weeks or months. Stories
in a series are told at a definite hour each week to
encourage regular attendance. However, each story
is complete in itself and any boys and girls of nine
years and more are invited to attend whether or not
they are registered borrowers of books.


GREEK CYCLE STORIES.

Greek Myths.

1. The gorgon's head.

2. Three golden apples.

3. The miraculous pitcher.

4. The Chimaera.

5. The Minotaur.

6. The Pygmies.

7. The golden fleece.

_Sources for the story teller:_
  Hawthorne. Wonder book.
  Hawthorne. Tanglewood tales.
  Kingsley. Heroes, or, Greek fairy tales for my children.

    The Hawthorne books are Greek myths interpreted into
    moral stories written in the author's inimitable style. The
    characters are more human and real to the child than those
    in the Kingsley version. Kingsley retains the Greek spirit
    and tells the stories in bold, strong, heroic outlines. They
    are probably more easily adapted than the Hawthorne versions.


Stories from the Odyssey.

1. Adventures of Ulysses with the Lotus Eaters and the Cyclops.

2. Kingdom of the Winds and the Island of Circe.

3. The visit to the Land of Shades.

4. Song of the Sirens, Scylla and Charybdis and the Oxen of the Sun.

5. The Island of Calypso and the shipwreck on the coast of Phaeocia.

6. Princess Nausicaa.

7. Battle of the Beggars.

8. Triumph of Ulysses.

_Sources for the story teller:_

  Homer. Odyssey; tr. by W.C. Bryant.

    Parts read or recited from this straightforward, dignified
     translation in blank verse will be appreciated by children.

Homer. Odyssey; done into English prose by Butcher and Lang.

Homer; tr. by G.H. Palmer.

  Both the above are accepted classic prose translations.
  The prose of Palmer is so direct, simple and rhythmic that
  a twelve-year-old child can enjoy it. Butcher and Lang
  use an older English style in the endeavor to make the
  translation an accurate historical document. The archaic
  language with its somewhat involved phrasing is confusing
  to children and makes it less readable than the Palmer
  translation.

Marvin. Adventures of Odysseus.

  This book is for boys and girls to read for themselves.
  So much of the Homeric spirit is retained and it is so well
  done that it will be very suggestive in organizing and preparing
  stories from the Odyssey for oral rendition.


Stories from the Iliad.

1. Cause of the Trojan war.

2. The quarrel of the chiefs and the results.

3. The duel of Paris and Menelaus.
   The great battles and the death of Patroclus.

4. Achilles in his sorrow vows vengeance on Troy.
   The armor of Achilles.

5. Death of Hector.
   Priam and Achilles.

6. The wooden horse and the end of the Trojan war.

_Sources for the story teller:_

  Homer. Iliad; tr. into English by W.C. Bryant.
    An interesting, dignified and scholarly rendition into English
    blank verse.

  Homer. The Iliad for boys and girls by A.J. Church.
    The Iliad translated into direct and simple prose.

  Homer. Stories from the Iliad by H.L. Havell.
    The atmosphere and spirit of the Iliad are well kept in
    this most excellent prose version of the Iliad. It may be
    used with older boys and girls and is a valuable aid in the
    preparation of the stories.



NORSE CYCLE STORIES.

14. Awakening of Brunhilda.

_Sources for the story teller:_

Northern mythology:

Anderson, R.B. Norse mythology.

  A complete and systematic presentation of the Norse
  mythology as embodied in the elder and younger Eddas and
  later sagas.

Brown, A.F. In the days of giants.

  The best form for younger children. A simple narration
  of the main facts of Norse mythology in story form,
  suggesting the strength of the original sagas.

Buxton, E.M. Wilmot. Stories of Norse heroes.

  A very satisfactory collection of Northern myths, including
  the story of the Nibelungs.

Bulfinch, Thomas. Age of Fable.

  An excellent text book. Gives three chapters to Northern
  mythology.

Carlyle, Thomas. The hero as divinity; Odin.
  _In his_ Heroes and hero-worship.

  This essay is most interesting and inspiring to the story-teller
  who is presenting Scandinavian mythology.

Mabie, H.W. Norse stories.

  In this collection the rugged strength of the Norse tales
  is modified by a style that polishes and a beauty which
  (however delightful in reading), could have been present
  only in a vague way in the original stories.

Nibelungen Lied.

Fall of the Nibelungers; tr. by W.N. Lettsom.

  Most of the adaptations are based on this translation.

The Nibelungs; tr. from the German of F. Schmidt by G. Upton.

_Adaptations:_

Baldwin, James. Story of Siegfried.

  A version of that part of the Nibelungen Lied which
  relates to the story of Siegfried. Incidentally the most important
  myths of the Norse gods are woven into the story.
  The most popular children's version, but very freely
  adapted.

Chapin, A.A. Story of the Rhinegold.

  Stories of Richard Wagner's four operas which form the
  'Nibelungen Cycle.' The treatment of the theme is full of
  strength but differs from other versions of the Nibelungen
  story.

Church, A.J. Treasure of the Nibelungs. _In
  his_ Heroes of Chivalry and romance.

  Brief account of the Nibelung story, leading to fuller
  versions.

McSpadden, J.W. Stories from Wagner.

  Contains the stories in simple form of a number of
  Wagner's great operas. The tale of the Rhinegold, as
  given here, is the best of the versions of Wagner for children.

Morris, William. Story of Sigurd the bolsung.

  Very charming poetical version.



KING ARTHUR TALES.

1. How Arthur proved his kingship.

2. The winning of the queen.

3. How the Round Table was established.

4. Three Knights of the Round Table: Sir Launcelot, first champion.


    Who was held by all men to be the most excellent, noble
    perfect knight champion who was ever seen in the world from
    the very beginning of chivalry unto the time when his son Sir
    Galahad appeared, like a bright star of extraordinary
    splendor shining in the sky.--_Pyle_.


5. Sir Tristram, second champion.


    If Sir Launcelot was the chiefest of all the knights who ever
    came unto King Arthur's court, then it is hard to say whether
    Sir Tristram or Sir Percival was second unto him in
    renown.--_Pyle_.


6. Sir Percival, third champion.

7. Quest of the Grail.

    The recovery of the Grail was the crowning glory of the reign
    of King Arthur.--_Pyle_.


8. Passing of Arthur.

    And I do hope that you may have found pleasure in considering
    their lives. For me seemed they offered a very high example
    that anyone might follow to his betterment who lives in this
    world where so much that is ill needs to be amended.--_Pyle_.

_Additional stories_:

Story of Merlin.
The boy of the kitchen, Sir Gareth.
Marriage of Sir Gawaine.
Story of Balin.

_Sources for the story teller_:

Malory, Sir Thomas. Boy's King Arthur ed.
by Sidney Lanier.

    Follows the Malory tales very closely. The greater part of
    the language is unchanged, though the spelling is modernized.
    Lanier has divided the tales into six books, grouping the
    stories around a central hero from whom the books derive
    their name. Book 1. King Arthur, 2. Sir Launcelot, 3. Sir
    Gareth, 4. Sir Tristram, 5. Sir Galahad and Sir Percival, 6.
    Death of King Arthur.

Malory, Sir Thomas. Book of King Arthur and
his noble knights; ed. by Mary Macleod.

    Tales selected from Le morte D'Arthur and simplified. Covers
    the whole period of the reign of King Arthur and includes
    stories of some of his knights, Sir Launcelot, Sir Gareth,
    Sir Tristram, and Sir Galahad.

Pyle, Howard. Story of King Arthur and his knights.
--Story of Sir Launcelot and his companions.
--Story of the champions of the Round Table.
--Story of the Grail and the passing of Arthur.

    Very complete and free versions of the Arthurian legends from
    Malory and other sources. The style is delightful and the
    language beautiful. Illustrated by the author.

Tennyson, Alfred. Idylls of the King.

    _Contents_: Coming of Arthur; The Round Table; Gareth and
    Lynette; Marriage of Geraint; Geraint and Enid; Balin and
    Balan; Merlin and Vivien; Lancelot and Elaine, The Holy
    Grail; Pelleas and Ettarre; The last tournament; Guinevere;
    The passing of Arthur. Portions of the Arthur legends told in
    poetic form.

2. The story of Ogier, the Dane.

3. The story of Ralph.

4. "A Roland for an Oliver."

5. The deeds of Magwis and Reinold of Montalban.

6. The battle of Roncesvalles.

_Sources for the story teller_:

    Baldwin, James. The story of Roland.

    Some of the many legends of French chivalry that cluster
    around the names of Charlemagne and Roland, translated into
    English prose and woven into a story with Roland as the
    center of interest. The main incidents have been derived from
    a variety of sources, but the arrangement and connecting
    parts are the author's own invention, making the whole an
    acceptable and interesting version.

    Church, A.J. Stories of Charlemagne.

    The old tales shortened and compressed but still retaining
    life and color and reflecting the spirit of the times. Five
    of the legends which are distinct in themselves have been
    used. "The four sons of Aymon," "Ralph, the Collier,"
    "Fireabras," "The song of Roland," and "Duke Huon of
    Bordeaux."

    Greene, F.N., and Kirk, D.W. With spurs of gold.

    A short account of Roland and Charlemagne, dealing
    principally with the battle of Roncesvalles.

    Maitland, Louise. Heroes of chivalry.

    Contains a very clear, brief account of the life and
    adventures of Roland, divided into five parts.

    Roland. The song of Roland, translated into English verse;
    O'Hagan.

    The story of the Battle of Roncesvalles, The spirit of
    chivalry, the bravery of the knights, the friendship of
    Roland and Oliver, and the treachery of Ganelon are all told
    in stirring, rhythmic verse.

    the author has rearranged the stories in groups. The book is
    charmingly illustrated by Hugh Thomson.

Stories from Chaucer retold from the Canterbury
tales by J.W. McSpadden.

    An excellent rendition of the Chaucer stories. The author has
    followed closely Chaucer's lines and in many places has
    included the original verse. This version will be found
    helpful in the preparation of the ten stories that it
    contains.

Canterbury chimes; or Chaucer tales retold for
children by F. Storr and H. Turner.

    This collection gives the Prologue and six of the pilgrims'
    stories. It follows closely the original verse, but is not as
    attractive as the McSpadden version, although the two are
    similar.

The Chaucer story book by Eva March Tappan.

    Includes eleven stories freely told and simplified. On this

    of the more modern versions.

  McSpadden, J.W. Stories of Robin Hood and his merry outlaws.

    as the Howard Pyle version, but the best inexpensive edition.

    of Pyle versions.

BOOKS ABOUT STORY TELLING.

_Best sources:_

  Bryant, S.C. How to tell stories to children.

    One of the most practical and helpful books on the subject.
    Fine common-sense is used in all that is said on the purpose
    of story-telling, the selection of stories and how to adapt
    and to tell the story. Some specific uses of the story in the
    school room are given besides a graded collection of
    thirty-two stories and a short list of books in which the
    story teller will find stories not too far from the form in
    which they are needed.

  Cowles, J.D. The art of story telling.

    A useful elementary book. Contains about 50 stories in form
    suited to young children.

  Lyman, Edna. Story telling; what to tell and how to tell it.

    Story telling; what to tell and how to tell it. "The purpose
    of this book is not in any way to attempt to give information
    to those who have devoted both time and study to the subject
    or who have had practical experience in story telling, but
    rather to make a few suggestions to those mothers, teachers
    and librarians who are interested in its use as a phase of
    another occupation." The chapters on "Reading aloud to
    children" and "Arranging the program of miscellaneous
    stories" are particularly suggestive. Contains good outlines
    for cycle story hours for older children.

  Olcott, F.J. Story telling poems.

    There is an introduction addressed to the story-teller
    suggesting ways in which the poems may be used. The poems are
    indexed under such ethical subjects as courage, humility,
    etc.

_Other sources:_

  Bryant, S.C. Stories to tell to children.

    Fifty-one stories with some suggestions for telling. There is
    a clear statement of the value to the child of the type of
    story which specifically teaches a certain ethical lesson and
    also the kind of story that has no moral to offer. The author
    believes in telling one to three in favor of the latter kind.
    The book also contains a few principles underlying the
    dramatization of stories for young children.

  Clemens, Samuel L. How to tell a story.

    The different methods required in telling witty, comic and
    humorous stories.

  Houghton, Mrs. L.S. Telling Bible stories.

    The author aims to inspire mothers and teachers to use the
    Old Testament stories more freely in developing the religious
    nature of the child.

  Keyes, A.M. Stories and story-telling.

    The author is head of the Department of English in the
    Brooklyn Training School for Teachers. Besides a discussion
    of method and theory the book contains about 75 stories,
    including a good selection of short stories suitable for
    young children to reproduce.

  MacClintock, P.L. Literature in the elementary school.

    Chapters 4 and 5 are suggestive in regard to analyzing a
    story and the characteristics of a good story.

  Partridge, E.N. _and_ G.E. Story telling in school and home.

    A large part of the book is devoted to the use of the story
    in teaching language, history, nature study and to its place
    in moral education. There are 18 well chosen stories re-told
    from myths, legends, fables and history.

  Ransome, Arthur. A history of story-telling;
    studies in the development of narrative.

    The chapter on "Origins" deals with story-telling outside
    books.

  St. John, E.P. Stories and story telling in
  moral and religious education.

    A book on methods written from a sane point of view. At the
    end of each chapter are many quotations from such authors as
    G. Stanley Hall, Felix Adler, Froebel, and George Adam Smith,
    and also a bibliography.

  Wyche, R.T. Some great stories and how to tell them.

    Emphasis is laid upon the psychological principles and the
    spiritual equipment in telling stories. The epic stories of
    Siegfried, Beowulf and Ulysses are given prominence with a
    retelling of Beowulf and four stories from King Arthur. One
    chapter is devoted to the "Story teller's league" and its
    work.
