Miss Chu's Story TIme is a delightful illustrated children's book about an eccentric and quirky story teller. This book was inspired by the Waldorf community in Boulder, CO. Waldorf philosophy is centered around folklore and the importance of creativity and the imagination. Miss Chu's Story Time aims to bring these important tenets into homes everywhere.
Miss Chu's Story Time is told from the perspective of a little girl who joins Miss Chu on her wild adventures. Miss Chu visits several classic stories from an exciting new angle. Referenced stories include classics like The Three Little Pigs, Green Eggs and Ham, Cinderella, Where The Wild Things Are, The Cat in the Hat, The Jungle Book, Peter Pan, and many more.
Children's books have two groups of readers - kids and story tellers. This book is aimed at both groups. Kids love this book because its fun, crazy, and they have a chance to guess what story is being referenced by Miss Chu. This book is also extremely important for adults because it challenges the story teller to be more creative when delivering a story. It emphasizes the importance of bringing stories to life, so that the children will be immersed so deeply in the story that it will affect their moral development and help build their character. This total engagement with the story also gives children a chance to "try on" different personalities on their journey to finding out who they are meant to be.
