Dragon Talks features an entire years worth of puppet scripts that work and are accessible for all ages. Through Robbie the dragon, children, youth, and adults alike are drawn into the text in a fun, open, and irreverent (in the best sense of the word) way. Robbie asks questions of the text, and points out confusing parts, in a way that sophisticated church people are often afraid to do. As such, the Robbie conversations are a meaningful and effective way to engage the text in an open-ended and playful way.
Based on the Revised Common Lectionary, these scripts are designed for use during childrens time in worship and can also be used as part of a Sunday or midweek Christian education program based on the lectionary.
Each script is written for two readers: Robbie and one other person. The book includes a disk containing the scripts and permission is granted to duplicate the scripts for use within the congregation.
