5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source for anyone involved in a puppetry ministry., April 3, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Perky Puppets With a Purpose: A Complete Guide to Puppetry & Ventriloquism in Christian Ministry (Paperback)
This is an all-inclusive guide designed for the use of puppets in Children's Christian Ministry. The first part of the book focuses on the basics of puppetry, including such topics as ventriloquism, puppet movements, and developing a puppet's character. The author, Mary Rose Pearson, then devotes Chapter 6 to the use of puppets specifically to teach God's Word. This emphasis is continued throughout the book, which I found to be especially helpful. The next section includes instructions for constructing various types of stages, props, and numerous puppets. Patterns for the puppets are included (need to be enlarged), and range from simple sock and paper bag puppets to more complex designs - there's even directions to make the Jonah puppet come out of the mouth of the whale puppet! Although the more complicated designs require some sewing ability, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. The illustrations are also helpful. The last portion of the book includes over 35 biblical dialogues and three plays, using the puppets previously presented. Each script contains the scripture references and the lesson theme. An index of lesson themes is also included. I found this book to be very helpful. The author's extensive experience in this Christian ministry is evident throughout. I'm both suprised and delighted with the amount of information, suggestions, patterns, and ideas that are crammed into these 160 pages, and would recommend this to anyone who would like to use puppets in their ministry.
