Auditory acuity is one of the most important skills we can teach to children—and adults. Being a good listener is key to becoming a successful problem solver, communicator, citizen, professional and friend. Storytelling provides an excellent model of oral language and is an exciting and entertaining venue for the development of auditory skills, interpersonal communication, and appreciation of the spoken word.

To hear Mr. Weiss tell a story is to become enthralled in the tale, and it is no wonder that young children leave the storyteller's circle determined to recreate the drama in their own creative play.  His stories encourage children to read original classical literature, either on their own or with the help of the more experienced readers in their lives.
