I love it! These story stones are so delightful for inspiring conversations, stories, and creative thinking skills. I also love the mini beast theme.

The opportunities are endless and I agree-stones do give empowerment in a funny sort of way.

Thanks Renee

Yes - the themes are great for subjects and the abstract illustrations really get the conversations going.

Best wishes
Juliet

I love that some of the story stones are straight forward and others abstract, allowing children to affix their own meaning to the stone - it's a wonderful way to meet children where they are. My communication center has not been enticing children this year and I think these stones would be a wonderful, exciting provocation. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi- thanks for your response, Miss Merril. Stones work especially well if children also paint their own designs too.

I LOVE the idea of doing abstract patterns and shapes on the stones. I don't know why I didn't think of this myself!

Thank you for taking the time to comment about this on my blog.
