FEATURED Professional Book

Considered the classic in the field, Children Tell Stories is useful to both experienced and novice teachers and storytellers who work with students from preschool through college.

"Hamilton and Weiss have thoroughly revised and updated their award winning Children Tell Stories in a new edition that is an indispensable guide to all aspects of teaching storytelling. An accompanying DVD brings the entire process to life, following the progress of third graders as they learn stories, cope with their fears, and master their tellings for presentation at a family event. Interviews with children, teachers, and families provide a broad context for the storytelling process."




The ILA conference July 18-20, 2015
was a great experience! We were able to meet and share our classroom resources with many inspiring educators from across the country.

And we gave away $300 worth of books to our lucky raffle winner -
Kelly V., Minot ND .

We are looking forward to the ILA conference next year in Boston, MA. We hope to see you there.


The Alphabet Card is a tool for helping primary grade children as they learn to write.

It’s meant to help children learn how to form letters, and also to help make the letter/sound associations stronger. 

The images on the Alphabet Card were carefully researched and tested. The font was chosen on the basis of what most closely replicates actual handwriting rather than book print. Three digraphs are included – “ch,” “sh,” and “th, - which are the most commonly used by primary-grade writers.
