Review:

PreS-Gr 3 Nationally recognized storyteller and educator Mary Jo Huff is featured in this fun-filled collection of ten stories filmed at the beautiful Ohio Township Public Library in Newburgh, Indiana, and the fictional Peeper Palace. Huff tells the stories to a group of young children of various ages and ethnic backgrounds. She captures their attention with just her voice and an occasional puppet as she tells a variety of stories from the interactive Chicken Fun, to the 3 Billy Goats told from the troll's point of view to Gingerbread Girl. Huff also includes the story time standard Mr. Wiggle & Mr. Waggle and the Modern 3 Bears featuring a Goldilocks who tries out different pizzas, CD players, and beds. The stories told at the Peeper Palace, a place inhabited by hand puppets made from gloves, include Willy the Worm, Old Lady in the Vinegar Bottle and Little Red House. They are well done but not as exciting as those told to an audience in the library. The extras, Get to Know Mary Jo and A Burst of Color, about the stained glass featured in the library, are directed more toward parents than children; How to Make a Peeper Puppet is related to the stories and intended for children. This delightful production will be a welcome addition to any collection. --School Library Journal

Kids will love this movie with stories, puppets and songs. It also teaches children how to use their imaginations. Some of the stories are Gingerbread Girl, Mr. Wiggle and Mr. Waggle and Honey Jar. Plus many more. Full of excitement!! --Dove Foundation
