I love that narration should be a fundamental part in our children's learning. I'm not sure how to avoid a child telling back the entire story. We do narration with our "fun books" and I allow her to tell me the whole thing back, and true, she does tell me her favorite parts. On my blog thummy.com/leesa I put my new method for helping my daughter with her narration when it needs to be condensed. She is already learning to recognize key points just from a few weeks of this practice. I loved your links on narration, thank you for sharing.
