Wanda and Wendall's Fairy Tales

Puppets are also valuable tools for promoting listening skills and vocabulary development.

Fairy Tale Animals
Talking animals are a common theme in mythology, folktales, and children's literature. Fictional talking animals often are anthropomorphic, possessing human-like qualities. The usage of animals that speak enables storytellers to combine the basic characteristics of the animal with a human's behavior, to apply metaphor and to entertain children. This program will feature a variety of live mammals, reptiles, and birds to provide a fascinating and unforgettable show. Our live animals presentations typically draw the largest crowds of the summer for the library summer reading programs.
