Stories to Play With - Kids' Tales Told with Puppets & Paper & Toys and Imagination
Published by August House Publishers
For storytellers who are just starting out, it seems appropriate to begin telling to young children. Yet young children present the most difficult audience a storyteller can face
So where does one begin?
Simple - with some old newspaper and the story Rain Hat or Mountain Climbing, children will be enthralled at the action of the young hero as you fold and tear and create mountains, hats, fans, and boats right before their very eyes
Or, take a milk carton and make a frog puppet to tell the story
The book contains a user-friendly layout, diagrams, instructions on movement and material construction, and entertaining stories
And most of the necessary materials can be found in your kitchen
