The authors present complete designs for 30 folktale storytime programs. Their compilation is arranged into three groups-stories about animals, people, and places. Each section provides a few questions to ask children in order to set the scene. The authors suggest games as well as other similar tales to read aloud. There is at least one page of attractive reproducible puppet patterns per folktale with more detailed instructions on how to use the commonly found materials. Bair and Andrews use the term "puppets" loosely because they offer a wide variety of pattern styles from stick puppets and fan puppets to finger designs and story cubes, which are optimal for sequencing activities. Both beginners and veteran storytellers will find something here to add some extra spice to their story hours.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
