 “Catch me if you can,” says Storytalker.

 It’d be wonderful, quite marvelous, and better than fireworks if Storytalker told you exactly who he is.

But he’s sly and clever, keeping everyone guessing over his methods of story-sending. Sometimes he’s bold, telling a story through the voice of a person you know or meet. Sometimes, he’s like a flash in the dark or a bump in the night. Sometimes he comes into your bedroom after the lights are out and whispers a story into the deepest part of your pink ear.

He travels all over the world and never rests. One after another, he pours out stories into hearts and minds, entertaining, comforting or transporting us to new places and ideas.

Storytalker likes the African chief’s wooden stool. Look at the carvings on the stools. Can you imagine the stories? Storytalker can. Before stories were written down they were told through pictures, carvings and one person sharing with another.

Next, stories were written down and shared through books, magazines and newspapers. Now we also find stories on the Internet. No matter  how stories are communicated, Storytalker is there.

Storytalker often whispers stories about and for children who don’t have many things or who struggle in life. He knows that stories are a big help for those children. But that’s only one way he works. No matter how much you have or don’t have, there is a story hole inside of you, one that needs to be fed.

Treasure every story Storytalker tells you in your ear and heart. As treasures, polish them from time to time. That means you must shine them up so that they are told in the most wonderful and exciting ways. Then share them with others.

Storytalker hopes you will enjoy some of the stories on this site that are being collectied from around the world.
