Reviewer Comments:

This podcast is part of the Meet Me at the Corner series. It is a virtual field trip to the Hans Christian Anderson statue in Central Park in NYC, where the host, a young boy, interviews a storyteller. The storyteller explains the differences between the art of writing a story and the art of telling a story. Ultimately, he tells a story, regaling us with twists of language and hidden messages. This interesting video is well produced, highly informational and brings the tradition of oral storytelling to life.

This is a great way to show children a virtual field trip without leaving the classroom.
