This Scientific American article on the neuroscience of storytelling ought to give pause to the staunchest skeptics of the proposition that puppet play has a significant neurological relationship with the general realm of narration and its capacity for emotive transport.

If educators were trained to be effective storytellers as well as playful practitioners of its sister art, namely the visual, moving, gesturing, and symbolic hand puppet, they would be equipped with two of the most powerful pathways for conveying information and turning kids into active and joyful receivers of that information.
