The revision of Storytelling with Puppets brings back to print one of ALA's greatest all-time hits among children's librarians. The first edition, written by Connie Champlin and (the late) Nancy Renfro, went through several printings after its 1985 debut. In this edition, Connie Champlin has polished the gems and fine-tuned sections to meet today's programming environment, paying special attention to literature-based instruction and multicultural themes. Designed for the individual storyteller working in informal settings, Storytelling with Puppets unveils myriad techniques sure to invigorate younger audiences, including open-box theaters, sound and action stories, and story aprons.
