The Down To Earth Dad®

Family Storytelling Night®

"An ENGAGING Resource for Schools and Programs"

Your Family Storytelling Night® activities will be EASY to implement over, and over again when you review, and apply, the “informational” components contained in the KIT, and when you use the KIT “materials” (unique crafts materials and other physical resources) at an initial BIG Family Storytelling Night® event for all your families -- and at subsequent events, and in classrooms, all year long.


'Gets Parents Actively INVOLVED at School!'


I've never seen our parents more energized and involved at our school as they were at Family Storytelling Night.  The storytelling nights really bring our families in and get them engaged in what's going on   laughing and participating, especially the dads who often aren't as involved at our other events. 

Not only is the literacy aspect valuable, but the parents are teaching their family history and heritage as well, through storytelling. You have provided us with a great way to get our parents more involved!!!

"I like the storytelling for the parents. I have talked with several parents who attended the Family Storytelling Night and they have incorporated that into their nightly routines at home!!  I like to do it with my kids also and they love to hear all the stories from my childhood and about what mom and dad did before they existed!"

Mary Reed, Family Services Director, West Central Community Services Head Start, Monmouth, IL
