Library Journal Review

Briggs gathers fun fingerplays to use primarily with finger puppets, although they can easily be adapted for use with stick puppets or flannel-board stories. The author also provides simple, traceable patterns to make the puppets and relates them to more than 350 books, including standard titles such as "Mother Goose," "The Gingerbread Boy," and Ezra Jack Keats's The Snowy Day (Viking, 1962). The introduction provides simple suggestions and tricks of the trade, e.g., types of gloves to purchase and where to place Velcro strips. There is no index, but the table of contents is organized by popular storytime themes. Librarians who have had to make do with old copies of Lynda Roberts's Mitt Magic (Gryphon, 1986), Betty Keefe's Fingerpuppets, Fingerplays, and Holidays (1984), or her Fingerpuppet Tales (1986, both Special Literature) will welcome this collection.-Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA (c) Copyright 2010.
