Dr. Michael Dorer starts his book The Deep Well of Time with the precious scene of his grandfather lying beside little Michael and telling a story of the little people. Dr. Dorer relates ‘There was no book. There were no pictures or videos. There was only his voice in the warm, dark bedroom, and his tales came to vivid life in my mind’. It was not until he became a Montessori elementary teacher (some 45 years ago!), that he rediscovered this great gift of storytelling and the power of creative imaginations.
