Balloons over Broadway
Balloon over Broadway tells the true story of Tony Sarg and the great impact his skills of manipulating marionettes created the beauty behind Macy's Thanksgiving parade. I believe this story falls under the category of informational books in that it tells the history of Tony Sarg with colorful covers and attention grabbing pictures to display his progress throughout his work. The artwork used through the book is amazing in the order it was used along with a small tribute with Tony's picture and a famous quote that Tony had always lived by. The arts played a huge role in Balloons over Broadway in that it introduced children to express themselves in their products which could range from painting all the way to building such huge balloons like Tony Sarg. The artwork used in the book looks that of a scrapbooking project and toys used from the early 1900's made of wood and cloth. We all know information books make the reader follow along easy and learn factual information about past history, Balloons over Broadway has done just that with chronological sequencing the evolution of Tony's puppets all the way to giant floating balloons tugged from below instead of above like his puppets.
