I have a new princess finger-puppet! I'm always searching for finger-puppets that represent people of color other than Caucasian. I especially want multicultural girl finger-puppets to represent the heroines of the fairytales I tell. Self-esteem starts young, and it can be quite disheartening when the general run of princess dolls have light-skin tones.
My new finger-puppet's name is Almira, which means "princess" in Arabic. Keep a lookout for her future appearances in storytimes.
