10-MINUTE PUPPETS is filled with imaginative ideas, energy, and the pure, childlike pleasure of turning objects into characters. There are finger puppets: Wigglin' worm in an Apple, Teeny Ballerina, Little Pachyderm. Sock and glove puppets: Crabby Crab and Herb the Plant. Cutouts, shadow puppets perfect for the spur of the moment, like Envelope Bird-make it using a deposit envelope while waiting in line at the bank. With full-colour illustrations throughout, the book has step-by-step instructions for each puppet; pages of puppet parts and bodies to cut out and use; how to create a simple puppet theatre; plus, a final chapter with ideas for putting on a show, drawing on nursery rhymes, fairy tales, family stories, and more. So the food is late and your six year old is about to lose it. You know what to do: using a marker and your napkin, make the fashionable Lady Finger and start entertaining. Better yet, pass the marker to your child to create Handford, and the two of you can put on an impromptu dinner show.
