Finger Puppets for Literacy

In 1997 I heard Colln Powell ask Americans to volunteer for America's youth.

I thought that I could make finger puppets to go with a book and donate them to someone. It took almost a year to find a group that would accept my donation.

I give about 200 books with puppets per year to my county's Nurturing/Parenting program. They send by FAX the groups that need puppets. At this time I am making five groups of puppets for the children with each book. These books are given to each child who completes the program which they have participated in for a period of time from six weeks to several months.

Some are families which have been court ordered and some are immigrant families.
