FIVE STAR SPARKS THE IMAGINATION WITH FIVE FINGERS OF FUN
CHANDLER, AZ - Parents and teachers looking to inspire children to read more - and have more fun while they're doing it - get a hand with Five Star Publication's Finger Puppets.
"It's a blast for kids to use the puppets to act out stories as they are being read to them or as they learn to read on their own," explains Linda Radke, a former special education teacher and president of Five Star Publications. "The words stick in their heads better because the puppets make reading a tactile experience as well as amusing!"
For example, when children read any of Samuel Lopez's True Stories About Saving Animals, like The Three Legged Kitten or Stinky Little Scroungy, the story of an abandoned puppy, or Conrad Storad's newest title, Rattlesnake Rules, they can put the corresponding Finger Puppets on their fingers and "act out" the stories as they are being read.
"The lessons in these types of books will be better assimilated in children's minds because they are using physical actions as the books are being read," adds Radke.
Five Star Finger Puppets are manufactured in the United States and made by hand of soft, durable, hand-washable yarn. They are child safe with no removable parts and come in packages of five that include owl, snake, child, dog and cat characters. Retail price is $12.95, and they are available online at www.FiveStarPublications.com, at the Jerome Gallery's Five Star Book Nook at 240 Hull St. in Jerome, Ariz., and will soon be available in other bookstores and gift shops around the country.
