Introducing No-Name, the New Storytime Puppet!

I first saw this beautiful and breathtaking puppet on Ms. Anna’s blog, Future Librarian Superhero, and I knew I had to have him. Her. Zir. I haven’t properly considered this puppet’s preferred pronouns.  In any case, No-Name the Puppet came in our last materials order, and I’m in love. I can’t wait to use No-Name to introduce the Letter of the Day in storytime!

I am maybe a little too into No-Name

Ms. Anna named her puppet Fergus, and Folkmanis, the company that sells the puppet, named it Blueper. I’ve decided to eschew this puppet-naming pressure altogether and, instead, hold a contest to let our library kids name the puppet.

Here’s the sign letting everyone know about the contest:

I crossed out the word "fortune" by hand because I just don't have that kind of money, honestly.

The form includes the following fields:

Your name:

Your age:

What should we name the puppet?:

Email/Phone number (we need to contact you if you win):

Do you like peanut butter?

Why do you like the library?

I’m going to go chill with No-Name, and I’ll get back to you when we’ve picked a name!

I'm like cat here, a no-name slob. We belong to nobody, and nobody belongs to us. We don't even belong to each other.

ETA: No-Name is named! The winning name was Pogo and she’s a storytime success. Look for her in upcoming posts.
