Homemade stories told in shadow and light at Sellwood Library

“Theater starts with light and shadow. Shadow puppets also help children realize they can create their own stories without elaborate tools or props.”
Cultures all over the world use puppets for storytelling and for children’s theater, Karbo says. “And, children get to learn shapes and patterns. It teaches them skills in learning to use tools to make things. They get to use their bodies; it shows them that storytelling and acting doesn’t only happen from the neck up
