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. "Puppets captivate and stories involve; when used in combination, magic results...exceptionally well done", wrote Public Libraries of the original.

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.

This magical book also otters complete repertory for children's storytellers, whether budding or accomplished puppeteers.

Encouraging flexibility and creative new ideas, Connie Champlin's latest effort is a source readers can turn to again and again. Once again tapping into her background in both theater and education, Champlin promises another big hit.
