Puppet Plays: Fun to watch and even more fun for kids to do, these entertaining puppet plays teach many things by example, and are meant to encourage children's interest in puppetry. Most kids will pick a puppet up and play with it for a little while--then put it down again, having nothing for it to really say or do. That's too bad because there's an excellent learning resource available here. With these puppet plays their puppets will have things to say and do. Puppetry, if encouraged and channeled correctly, can motivate kids to do better in their studies, and even help them develop socially. The DVD is over an hour and ten minutes long.
