101 Fingerplays, Stories, and Songs to Use With Finger PuppetsBook - 1999
Diane Briggs, author of the bestselling 52 Programs for Preschoolers: The Librarian's Year-Round Planner, suggests finger puppets. Of course, all your fingertip magic is about reading. Briggs recommends more than 350 books to use with these fingerplays. A discography guides you to more than a dozen recordings of songs and tunes ideal for use in these programs. Because not every librarian is an artist, Briggs has drawn puppet patterns in a basic style, easy to reproduce with scissors and felt. You also could use the patterns for stick puppets, flannel board presentations, or other themed material. Your core audience for these fingerplays will be babies, toddlers, and preschoolers. However, you might also find opportunities to bring out your finger puppets with children in the early elementary grades.
