Fiber Art - Books, Puppets and Toys

These items are handcrafted. They are the language of childhood and embody the stories that I love. Children think and share as they see, touch and play with their toys. A book or toy can be a gateway to enchanted worlds. Imagination and pretend play are the business of childhood and set the stage for learning and fun. Exploring the world of make believe helps language and thinking to mesh and move like the gears in a well oiled machine primed for communication. These books, puppets and toys are designed to display, expand and enrich the narratives that children of all ages and cultures learn and share. Items are grouped in categories and listed alphabetically. Where a tutorial is available a link will be provided. Many of the ideas for these items were seen in books and web sites. Sources will be identified for those items.
