18 GREAT SCHOOL SHOWS

Study Guide: PIERROT & PIROUETTE



We suggest Mr. Stolzenberg’s books, “Be A Clown” and “Be A Mime” published by Sterling Publishing Co. These are thorough instructional books for young people with hundreds of photos about Mime and Clowning. Excellent for preparation and follow up activities. Both books come highly recommended by THE AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION & LIBRARY JOURNAL.
