Everyone should know a few "party tricks" and hand shadows are easy to learn with this little book. Illustrations show hand positions clearly, and there's a nice poem for each shadow. All but one require the use of both hands, and some definitely take practice to achieve! My one star off is because I would have liked a range of simpler shadows in addition to the more challenging ones.
Here's what you get: goose, deer, bunny, birds, goat, dog, elephant, greyhound, pig, bear, mule, bulldog, tortoise, camel, hare, cockatoo, bull, squirrel, eagle, sheep, swan, and several versions of man.
Discover the age-old art of hand shadows! Children and adults around the world delight in hand shadows, and this little activity book shows how to perform the ancient art. Learn how to entertain friends and family with shadow pictures of a bird, bunny, elephant, and other figures. Detailed illustrations, accompanied by charming verses, depict the formation of 28 images using only hands and fingers.
