Storytelling Made Easy with Puppets.
VanSchuyver, Jan M.
Useful to both beginning and experienced puppeteers and storytellers, this book provides step-by-step instructions for people who want to use puppets with familiar literature for children ages 2 to 8. The first section of the book (which introduces concepts basic to puppetry) contains 24 scripts with complete directions for successful activities that use puppets to bring literature to life. The second section features seven simple puppet activities children can do individually and in groups. The third section gives more information on puppetry and storytelling for people who have used some of the scripts and want to know and do more. A bibliography of children's books selected for their effectiveness in storytime presentations is also included. (RS)
