I am new to puppets and new to puppet in education. This book thus far been my bible.
It contains information on choosing a puppet and how to convey expressions (much time has been spent in front of the mirror as a result). It explains how to use puppets in different lessons (eg. numberacy and literacy) and shows you how they link into the curriculum. All this plus examples exercies!
The book is very thin and you may be fooled into thinking there is not much information inside, but trust me- it's wonderful.
I bought this book for my daughter as a Christmas present whilst she was on her PGCE course at Manchester University. She was very happy with it because she said it contains great ideas on how puppets can be used in the classroom for primary education.
