Type Tales (Hardcover)

 Diane Farris
Type Tales (Paperback)
Single Item
Product: 60096


Author and artist Diane Farris uses innovative photography to illustrate four charming tales about canine friends Millie and Momo. Written for children grades one through five, these engaging stories address type in a way children will understand. By following Millie and Momo's daily adventures, children learn about the differences in personalities. Type Tales is an excellent learning tool that offers chapters for adults on psychological type; type dynamics; and type in families, counseling, and the classroom. Helpful teaching suggestions, discussion questions, and a list of resources are included.

"I used the first edition with children from second grade through junior high school and found the stories to be extremely effective in demonstrating and supporting the concepts of type differences. The children even take the characters and expound on the theme by continuing to role-play beyond the story line. Each time I taught a class using the book I left a copy as a gift to the class and teachers repeatedly told me it was a class favorite."

—Elizabeth Murphy, Ed.D., co-author of the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children® (MMTIC®) assessment

"I have enjoyed sharing this with young gifted children. They relate well to Millie and Momo and love learning about their own personality styles through this clever medium. The book definately enhances communication and understanding, as well as building self-esteem. A must for every classroom!"

—Linda Kreger Silverman, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist, Director, Gifted Development Center, Denver, Colorado

"The stories are charming and the theoretical discussions are wonderfully gentle and clear. Type Tales should be a great resource for teachers, parents, and counselors, as well as a source of amusement and insight to children themselves."

—Rev. Jeremy Taylor, author of Where People Fly and Water Runs Uphill and The Living Labyrinth
