When you tuck your child in at night – do you read to them or make-up your own stories? Rachel talks to librarian, Mark H. Pulham about the importance of reading or telling stories to children. Don’t worry about making it a theatrical production. Just be you. The most important thing, he says, is that you’re spending time with them. Mark is a librarian and puppeteer at the Orem, Utah Public Library. He uses these talents, along with storytelling and acting, every year at the Timpanogos Storytelling Festival in Orem, Utah. Mark Pulham is also co-author of Dressing the Naked Hand: The World’s Greatest Guide to Making, Staging, and Performing with Puppets.
