(Puppy and rabbit puppet. Arni Snufflebuffer as himself. Sound effects courtesy of Cosmi.com) This play is basically meant to be funny and entertaining.
However, for some folks it can also act as a springboard for discussions about “difference”.
No matter how different others may seem, still they have their gifts to offer. Everybody has something to contribute. It’s up to each of us to foster tolerance and patience, as well as cultivate the wisdom to come to a place within where we can appreciate the value of the contributions, obvious and subtle, of those who are different from us.
Also noteworthy in this puppet play: Arni gets frustrated, year after year, and goes back to the mountains. This may be seen as a metaphor for the child that gives up and goes somewhere else only to get further and further behind. This part of the play may serve as a window--before a child starts to get behind--to open into a discussion about the effects of letting frustration get the better of us.
