Inhaltsangabe: This classic Russian folktale has parallels in Japanese and Indian folklore as well. An adoring old couple concocts increasingly silly names for its kitten before stumbling on the perfect one. Nina Khashchina's playful watercolor paintings delight audiences young and old, and the interactive text keeps kids guessing up till the final card. Simple, short sentences are ideal for audiences as young as 2 years old. 8 cards (16 pages); bilingual English/Russian
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 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 Storycard Theater series won the 2004 Dr. Toy Awards for Top 10 Creative Products and 100 Best Children's Products.
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."
