Includes pages of puppet parts and other templates to cut out and use; plans for six easy puppet theaters; and how to put on a show by drawing from nursery rhymes, fairy tales, family stories, and more.

My two-year old daughters just love this book. The craft part of making the puppets is something they love and I love doing with them. Once the puppets are done they just play with them for hours. Such cute and simple ideas. Nothing but great things to say about this book. Yay!!

What a great addition to any teacher's arsenal of ideas! I work in a pre-school, and the puppets in this book are perfect for not only our 3 and 4 year-old students to make at craft time, but are also great for our two-year-old classes to use for story time and more. From The Fab Five Fingers to Tiny Hero/Teeny Ballerina and A Puppet Called You, any teacher can bring a whole new dimension to their curriculum with this book. The templates are very helpful and a snap to re-create and the If You Have More Time Tips are wonderful as well. This book is a must-have for any teacher of young kids. Thanks Noel for inspiring more fun in the classroom!

Hi Noel,
I received your wonderful book from the publisher. Thank you soo much. It is absolutely terrific- the concept, the illustrations, the organization of it. You should be very proud. I hope they have to reprint more. It makes a wonderful gift.
Love,
Fran

I purchased three copies of this book. One for my son, another for my niece, and the other for a friend. This book was the hit of Christmas. The kids loved creating the puppets. Friends would drop by, and the kids would make more puppets with them. It is an unending book of ways to entertain your child.If you purchase this book, you will not be disappointed.

With these easy directions and great pictures, I can use this to make puppets for my class. The sock puppets are an easy and inexpensive way to bring characters to stories that are read.

I just checked this book out from the library but I'm going to have to buy a copy of my own. The puppets are simple and inexpensive to make - and very creative. The instructions, photos, and illustrations are very easy to follow. I especially loved the napkin bunny.

An easy-to-follow how-to eye-opener for those who think puppets have to be as simple as sox with eyes or as evolved as Elmo.
Projects shown require different levels of input and/or expertise. Most are doable even by the short attention span demographic.
The shadow puppet section explained some things we'd never figured out on our own.
The patterns, if you need them, are good; but the do-your-own-thing projects are what attracted us.
