Puppets, pizza, and learning about nature

Joyce Davis performs a puppet show

At Orlander Park in Sylvania on Sunday, January 20th families came to learn about nature.

Educator Joyce Davis commented on the importance of children going outside, saying, "This is a huge deal, because we are trying to get children to go outside and turn the TVâ??s off and video games off and venture outside."

Children choose a book to read before watching a puppet show performed by Davis. Afterwards, the children made their own puppet.

Sunday marked the kick-off of a program called Readers Theater, where children are going to choose a book and perform the story. The performance will be in March at Orlander Park.
