Peninnah Schram

Peninnah Schram

"In the beginning there was storytelling." So says master children's storyteller Peninnah Schram, author of Jewish Stories One Generation Tells Another and other Jewish children's favorites. She explains that "storytelling has three key elements—the story, the teller and the listener… [It] is… as an art… a craft… a shared experience…"
