Is it a bear? A palace? A wagon? A plow?... It's The Big Dipper! This fascinating show uses hand puppets, rod puppets, rod and mouth puppets, and shadow puppetry as it combines science facts and colorful myths from Greece, China, and North America in a fun introduction to the best known and easiest- to- locate star feature in our part of the sky.
4 tales from around the world are dramatized using shadow puppets and overhead projection: Money Makes Cares from China, The Tiger's Whisker from Korea, The Indian Cinderella from Canada, and The Magic Lake from Ecuador. Each story is introduced by a lively animal character from that part of the world, and the origin and amazing similarities of world tales are presented.
