Monday morning I was up bright and early and heading to Murray, UT to be a guest storyteller at McMillan Elementary. Driving through the rain I organized my thoughts, stories, did some face and speech warm ups and was ready to go. I was amazed as the kids came into the gym class by class with very little talking. They were so well behaved and when they were asked to show their school spirit and and call out “Mighty Knights,” they did so with gusto! Mrs. Sanford the principal graciously introduced me I was off…

I told the Irish folktale of “One Wish” and then we traveled in our imagination to Hawaii as they listened to “Ka’ulu the Strong.” Sandra Malbon, another one of Utah’s wonderful storytellers, will be doing a storytelling residency at this school.
