There are wishes we wish for others to grant and those only we can make come true through hard work and perseverance. This multicultural show tells three folktales about wishing, using three different styles of puppetry. The stories are “The Knee-High Man,” “The Frog Prince,” and “Little Orphan Animal”.
You can add a Shadow Puppet-making Workshop to go with this show, or even use the templates on our Educators page to make them yourself!
