Middle Township 2/15/2006

By Rick Racela

Children and adults alike will enjoy a presentation of stuffed dolls depicting characters from children’s favorite story tales.
Each character is numbered but not identified.
Viewers can enjoy guessing the identity of each doll.
Available is an answer key that connects the character’s number, and the character’s name.
My ten year old daughter and I consider ourselves well-read when it comes to children’s literature, but even we were stumped on a few. It’s a great display. Try it!
If you are really into it, you may even purchase postage stamps from USPS with many of the same children’s lit characters.
