month the students and I have been reading the book Balloons Over
Broadway in the library during their Language Arts classes. Balloons
Over Broadway is a biography of Tony Sarg, the man who invented the
balloons that we see every Thanksgiving in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade. Sarg was actually a puppeteer who used his inventiveness and
ingenuity to create something completely different. He left behind a
huge legacy, not only in the creation of the balloons we now expect to
see every Thanksgiving, but also in puppeteering. His work was a major
influence on Jim Henson, the inventor of the Muppets, who's work our students recognize from Sesame Street.
