101 Fingerplays, Stories, and Songs to Use With Finger Puppets by Diane Briggs

Diane Briggs, author of the bestselling 52 Programs for Preschoolers: The Year Round Planner, suggests finger puppets. In 101 Fingerplays: Stories, & Songs to Use with Finger Puppets, you will meet Busy Bugs, Teeny Weeny Dinosaurs, & Funny Ducks. Also appearing are such storytime celebrities as Five Little Monkeys & the Eensie Weensie Spider. This host of finger-sized creations offers holiday themes as well. Of course, all of these fingertip stories relate to reading. Briggs recommends more than 350 books to use with these fingerplays. A selective discography guides you to a dozen recordings ideal for use in these programs. Because not every librarian is an artist, Briggs has drawn puppet patterns in a basic style, easy to replicate with scissors & felt. Your core audience for these fingerplays will be with babies, toddlers, & preschoolers. However, you might also find opportunities to bring out your finger puppets with children in the early elementary grades. Or you could use the patterns for stick puppets, flannel board presentations, or other theme material. Save program-planning time & stretch those teeny attention spans with 101 Fingerplays, Stories, & Songs to Use with Finger Puppets! Diane Briggs is a youth services librarian at the Bethlehem Public Library in Delmar, New York, a school media specialist at the Maplewood School in Watervliet, New York, & a member of the National Storytelling Association. A graduate of the School of Information Science at the State University of New York at Albany, Briggs is also the author of 52 Programs for Preschoolers: The Librarians Year-Round Planner, published by ALA Editions. Other titles by Briggs are Toddler Storytime Programs & Flannel Board Fun, both published by Scarecrow Press. She lives in Delmar, New York, with her husband Scott & son Thomas.
