Even in an age of technical wizardry, clever dialogue and home-made puppets are all it takes to entertain children. Author Dee Anderson has presented puppet skits for sixteen years in libraries, schools, parks, day-care centers, a mall, and other community locations. Each of these forty-two scripts has been audience tested, some more than one hundred times. You'll find programming material for ages 18 months to 12 years. A former children's librarian herself, Anderson has created scripts that are accessible and practical for busy librarians and others who work with children."@en
