Kamishibai Character


UNAWE ibook & workshop

UNAWE developed an activity introducing an old Japanese storytelling technique using a small theater in which illustrated cards are slide into. This technique is believed to help children focus on the story. In this activity children can create their own theatre using the template and instructions I designed, and then draw their own story to play. To animate the steps I have created a Japanese character that helps children go through the steps and explain the story.


We also created an ibook with an introduction to the concept, a template specially for tablets and a story about 'Stella & Giotto looking for Alien' written and illustrated by members of the Italian UNAWE. The ibook can be purchased for free in the ibook store under the name "Stella&Giotto looking for aliens."


Here are some slides of the PDF/ibook I have put together:
