Dianne de Las Casas, Author, Award-Winning Storyteller's Page
Something About Me and My Book:
Touring internationally, author and award-winning Storyteller Dianne de Las Casas sizzles on stage with “traditional folklore gone fun!” Audiences don’t just listen – they sing, clap, dance, chant, and roar with laughter. De Las Casas lived in the Philippines, Hawaii, Spain and traveled across Europe and the United States. Her varied cultural experiences nourished her imagination, and she continues to draw on that knowledge, adding depth and richness to her tales.
Her debut CD, Jambalaya ~ Stories with Louisiana Flavor, won a 2004 iParenting Media Award, a 2004 Children’s Music Web Award, and a 2005 Storytelling World Honor. Her second CD, World Fiesta, won a 2005 Children’s Music Web Award, received a rave review in ALA Booklist and was selected by School Library Journal as “Audio of the Week.” Her latest CD, Jump, Jiggle & Jam ~ A Rhythmic Romp Through Story Land, won a 2006 NAPPA Honors, 2006 Children’s Music Web Award, and rave reviews in School Library Journal and Publisher’s Weekly.
De Las Casas is the author of The Story Biz Handbook (The Story Connection), Story Fest: Crafting Story Theater Scripts (Teacher Ideas Press), Kamishibai Story Theater: The Art of Picture Telling (Teacher Ideas Press), and Handmade Tales: Stories to Make and Take (Libraries Unlimited).
Dianne de Las Casas continues to make the story connection with thousands of children every year, reaching and teaching through the art of storytelling.

Hi Dianne, your site is great. It must be great to write for children. I was going to try that one time with my sister, but we didn't think we could do it, so we wrote a couple of romances instead. Welcome Shirley
