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!
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:
The form includes the following fields:
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!
~Love and Libraries, Ingrid
ETA: No-Name is named! The winning name was Pogo and she’s a storytime success. Look for her in upcoming posts.
