The Folkstories of Children

By Brian Sutton-Smith | Go to book overview

PREFACE

The present work was part of a larger project supported by the National Institute of Education (Project number 3–4015, Grant number NE–G–00–3–0133). The results of that project on “the enculturation of the imaginative processes between the ages of five and seven years and their effects upon classroom activity” are to be found in the Educational Resources Information Center, Early Childhood Education, University of Illinois (Bureau number BR–3–4015, published September 1976, 326 pages).

The present work is composed of stories collected from children between the ages of two and ten years. The location of the fieldwork for Part 1 of this work was the Soho Center for the Arts and Education on Prince Street in the Soho section of New York. We are indebted to Jeanna Gollobin for her support of this work. Her interest in the children’s artwork and creativity made it possible for our collector Dan Mahony to gain more complete material than is usually possible from children of such a young age. He collected stories from two- to four-year-old children. Many thanks are due to him for his enthusiasm and his initiative in compiling this collection.
