A-Hunting We Will Go

A-Hunting We Will Go: Barefoot Books-LadyD

Here on the ranch, we have lots of trees in the grove for kids to climb on. Hiding under the rocks, boys can find tons of scampering bugs. The great outdoors beckons all of my 5 grandchildren to play outdoors. One song that comes to mind is A-Hunting We Will Go and then, of course, Little White Duck. I'm sure you've heard them before!

Awhile back I reviewed a fantastic book, Paper Sack PuppetsPuppetry is an old and respected art form but it is also just plain fun. This book presents dozens of original patterns for a particular kind of puppet--those made from paper sacks. Those brown (or white) paper bags generations of students have used to tote lunch to school prove to be an inexpensive base on which to create puppets that can be used to teach as well as entertain. Along with the patterns are related activities, music, poems, book lists, and games. Chock full of great ideas and clear instructions, the book will become a valuable resource for teachers, librarians, and parents.

Happy reading and singing!
