Inhaltsangabe: The Moon Princess is based on one of the oldest written tales in Japan, dating back more than a thousand years. (It's also known as The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.) A baby girl magically born from a stalk of bamboo grows into a shining beauty, then cleverly outwits all the men who want to marry her before revealing her big secret and floating off to the moon.
The story is a wonderful departure from the typical "helpless princess in a tower" tale, and full of fascinating symbolism and historical imagery. Kazumi Verkler's beautiful illustrations incorporate authentic kimono patterns, and each page is written in both English and Japanese.
Vom Verlag: Now you can tell stories, not just read them. Based on traditional Japanese picture-card dramas called kamishibai (paper theater), the Storycard Theater® format allows you to read to a group of children while showing them the pictures. No longer do you have to twist your neck to read a picture book! And with the freedom to look your audience in the eye, you can concentrate on the performance. Reading becomes storytelling. It's easy and fun.
Storycard Theater dramas are printed on 12 sturdy, 13" x 9-5/8" cards. They're small enough to hold comfortably, yet large enough to showcase the colorful artwork. The back of each card features clear, kid-tested text and a smaller version of the image the audience is seeing.
These storycards are ideal for classrooms, birthday parties, daycare centers, family gatherings, and for students learning English. In fact, many children enjoy performing them for each other, or inventing their own stories based on the artwork.
The kamishibai (kah-mee-shee-bye) format dates back to the 12th century, when Buddhist monks traveled Asia with pictures to enhance their stories and lectures. Between the 1930s and 1950s in Japan, it was common to see kamishibai storytellers in parks, fields, or on street corners -- wherever children gathered. Riding up on bicycles with a small wooden stage mounted on the back, these enterprising men sold candies and snacks to the children, then launched into a dramatic performance. (Children who bought candy got to sit closer.) It's estimated there were once 50,000 kamishibai storytellers in Japan. Unfortunately, as television and movies began to lure children indoors, these storytellers gradually disappeared.
Leaf Moon Arts is excited to bring back this unique and effective form of storytelling. Try it yourself. We think you'll see why Storycard Theater owners call the series "spellbinding."
