Bluebonnet Book Fun!  

picThis 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.
