Here's what others Teachers have said about our Books, Puppets and Puppet Packs
"Tena koe Erin, it was such a pleaseure to chat to you at the ECC conference this year. Thanks again for your wonderful resources, that provide the children at our centres (0-5) with an increased literacy awareness & skills. It's always amazing to see young toddlers (12months) enjoying stories/books like Mr Possom, they do all the actions & their parents are always impressed that their children are learning this at such a young age. Such catchy tunes - and what child dosen't like saying NO! Thanks again - keep up the good work!" Linley (Linley Hattrill)

"Hi Erin, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your puppet and storytelling workshop. The other staff and myself have introduced a good number of the puppets and read and ‘played out’ the stories with the children. The children are really enjoying these sessions with the puppets and they’re wanting to use them on a daily basis.

"Thanks for the wonderful workshop you presented to our teachers and the other centres we invited along. Everyone had a wonderful time. I am certainly enjoying using the puppets at mat-time now and have become much more confident since your visit, but I’ll continue to practice.
The children are still talking about your puppet show performance – they loved meeting BIG Kiwi and they enjoyed their fun puppet afternoon"
