Interesting read … Recommended … 4 stars
Finger Puppet illustrations with
a chapter on how to use them and patterns for making the moppets
are all included in this engaging work produced by long time
children's advocate Violet Toler. Charles Quincy Churchmouse,
is the top mouse so to speak and is included in each of Toler's
scripts. Toler includes suggestions for choice of puppeteers
as well as how to make puppets. A nice collection of story scripts
are included. Scripts are simple, to the point, easy for the
novice to use successfully for teaching young children truths,
values, and religious tenets. The first nine scripts feature
Charlie, the second nine Charlie and Lizzie, the next nine Charlie
and Grandpa Joe and the final nine Charlie and Mary. The book
finishes up with how to contact information and author biography.
Unfortunately I found the links in the PDF do not take the reader
to the sites.
is a nice work presented by writer Toler for use in libraries,
schools, churches and camp meetings. Illustrations and patterns
included in Churchmouse Tales are nicely drawn, easy to follow,
will produce credible little mice for the reader's use. Language
used for both the text and scripts is geared well, children will
not be bored by 'preachy' messages. Adult readers do not feel
'spoken down to.'
This book will make a nice addition
to the church, home and school library.
Enjoyed the read. Happy to recommend.
