We purchase most of our puppets from Mr. Anderson’s Company. I always enjoy meeting with our local rep – seeing the new materials, playing with the new puppets and puzzles, and just chit chatting about a variety of subjects (work related or not).
A few months ago, Mr. Anderson’s Co. began publishing Puppet Tales, themed resource guides available online. You can sign up to receive an email when the latest issue is available. These guides are filled with many creative and helpful items – stories, finger plays, songs, and, of course, the puppets to go with the theme! There are several issues available that are perfect for this year’s Summer Reading Club theme (Catch the Reading Bug!).
