Do you ever wish you had an extra pair of hands in the classroom?

Debunking the notion that puppets are strictly for play, A Show of Hands presents innovative ways to use puppets as developmentally appropriate teaching tools. Seven in-depth chapters show how you can use puppets to

  • support emergent literacy skills
  • introduce children's literature
  • manage the classroom, and
  • assist in the development of lesson plans of the teacher and class.

An ideal resource for teachers from preschool to early primary, A Show of Hands also includes helpful instructions for designing, constructing, or purchasing your own puppets, and for using them with children who have special needs.
