    Chapter 4: Puppets

    Puppets

    Puppets have long provided entertainment for young and old alike.  Puppetry is now probably more familiar through television than live performance, but it still flourishes throughout the world.  Children who have difficulty with expression and feeling find security in projecting themselves into another character.  Creativity and interest develop as children are allowed to express themselves through dramatization with puppet characters.  

    There are many different types of puppets.  They can range in complexity from the very simple finger puppet to a detailed marionette puppet.  When used correctly, all can be used effectively in storytelling.
