Keeping the kids entertained at home is often difficult even when there isn’t a pandemic going on. So, what hope do you have when the schools are shut and you’re having to take on homeschooling responsibilities alongside all of the other duties and stresses you’re likely to have at the minute?
As it happens, we can help you with that here at Puppets By Post! That’s because we’re delighted to be able to offer an in-depth assortment of educational book sets in our online store, featuring a wide range of puppet characters that your little ones are sure to love.
We give you so many fun ways to tell a story
It’s all very simple; you take your pick from our broad range of vibrant and colourful puppet story books, and you won’t just get the beautifully illustrated stories themselves, but also the puppets included in the package that will help to bring those stories to life.
One of those educational book sets that we have in stock right now is the Can’t You Sleep Little Bear Book by Martin Waddell and Barbara Firth. It’s all about Little Bear and his fear of the dark that keeps him from sleeping; however, Big Bear eventually finds a way to reassure Little Bear, so that he can fall fast asleep. This set encompasses the paperback book, a Baby Bear finger puppet and a bear carpet hand puppet.
Or what about A Squash And a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, which tells the classic tale of a little old lady, a wise old man and a crew of jig-dancing animals? As you might expect, this set includes everything that you’ll need to tell the story that will enthral your baby, toddler or older child, including the paperback book and goat, cow, pig, cockerel, old lady and old man finger puppets.
Alternatively, looking away from the subject of animals – and we certainly have plenty of animal-themed educational book sets in our present range – what about something like this enchanting David & Goliath Story Book with Puppets? A spiral-bound book and two finger puppets – David and Goliath – are included in this set, and are suitable for use by those aged three years and above.
Another one of our sets that we’re especially fond of is this Room on a Broom Book with Puppets one. It tells the tale of a kind witch who invites various animals to join her on her broom, with the gang ultimately saving her from a fearsome dragon. The book in this particular set is in hardback, while red dragon, cat, dog, green hummingbird, frog and witch finger puppets are also present and correct.
The perfect source of family escapism during lockdown!
Whatever the circumstances and however old your children may be, it seems that you just can’t beat puppets as a way to beat the lockdown blues.
