Dear colleagues,  The Hungry Clothes got the most votes as a 
suggested book to give our volunteer storytellers, and it is indeed a 
beautiful book--one of my favorites.  I think, however, I'm going to 
go with Three Times Chai--a collection of 54 rabbis' favorite stories 
and it also gives the reason they like these, the way they use the 
stories to teach a lesson or illustrate a point.
   I want to have a little "reception" on the last day of school for 
these wonderful volunteers--serve coffee and treats and give them 
book (along with a gift cloth bookmark from Highsmith); has anyone 
else ever had a program like this for library volunteers?  If yes, I 
would like to hear about it;  I've had storytelling workshops for 
volunteers, but never a formal thank-you program for the group.
