Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a resource for storytelling in the classroom. The puppet scripts and suggestions are very helpful. When using puppets, you do not have to use a puppet voice or be a pro-puppeteer. Any early childhood education teacher could benefit from this book.

Book was just what I was looking for since I wanted skits for one person. Some skits required just one puppets and the skits weren't that long. Easy to memorize skits.
