Here are the new Spring line of folkmanis puppets from Barefoot! I have already shown you the darling Tiger Cub puppet which goes along with the new Emily’s Tiger book on the previous Spring List; but now I have pictures of the other animals: Lion, Giraffe and Zebra hand puppets.   Here we also introduce the spectacular Prince puppet with his royal crown and gold-trimmed purple cloak, which will be a wonderful addition to your classroom fairytale storytimes. Enjoy browsing for the new titles, they are very easy to find at my Barefoot Books online store; just click on the yellow “New for Spring” Banner on the left of the landing page.
