Puppeteer Doug Roysden shared several stories with the students to enhanced the use of his marionettes.
He told the young audience that when he was a boy, his grandfather would read to him every night.
Sometimes, he read stories; other times, he recitet poetry.
One story he recalled his grandfather reading to him was about Br'er Rabbit and Boss Lion.
The only problem, Roysden said, was his grandfather would fall asleep before finishing the story.
