Israeli puppeteer and clown working to help hospitalized kids

Here’s a news highlight on a wonderful article about using puppets and clowns to create a positive, healing environment. I know it was published quite awhile ago, but I still think it’s a great read. Check out the article here

I found it awesome to learn about what other countries are doing to help children in the hospital and also how they are dialoging with those in the United States. I was really impressed with how Ashbal, the puppeteer developed the one-on-one work with patients, I would love to see it live. It is also interesting how much Israel has advanced in medical clowning. It would be awesome to take one or two of their medical clowning classes! Anyways, I highly recommend this article!
