In The Storyteller’s Candle, a skilled bilingual storyteller plays Pura, greeting audiences in their own school or public library, and showing them the wonders that can take place there. Through a blend of storytelling, music and puppetry, young audiences will learn about Puerto Rican folklore and the library’s important role in the community. Kids sing along and become puppeteers as Pura’s stories unfold. Based on the bilingual book, The Storyteller’s Candle By Lucia González with illustrations by Lulu Delacre.
