About the Author

Kevin Strauss, naturalist storyteller, tells nature stories and world folktales for listeners of all ages. Kevin performs storytelling concerts and workshops at schools, nature centers, libraries, and community events across the Midwest. He serves on the Northlands Storytelling Network's board of directors and is artistic director for the Moose is Loose Storytelling Festival each July in Ely, Minnesota. Kevin has performed storytelling workshops at the Midwest Environmental Education Conference, the Northlands Storytelling Network Conference, and the National Storytelling Network Conference.


"A well-organized guide for librarians, educators, and storytellers who wish to combine science and story. Strauss makes the case for the integration of the two fields, explaining that students need not only to know about the natural world, but also to care about it. He maintains that stories that incorporate environmental elements help make this connection." - School Library Journal
