Monsieur Marceau

Do you like playing charades?  If so, then you will enjoy knowing about our Bluebonnet Book of the week.  It's called Monsieur Marceau and is a biography about one of the most famous mimes of all time.

Marcel Marceau, the world's most famous mime, enthralled audiences around the world for more than fifty years. When he waved his hand or lifted his eyebrow he was able to speak volumes without ever saying a word. But few know the story of the man behind those gestures . . . Distinguished author Leda Schubert and award-winning artist Gerard DuBois bring their own artistry to this gorgeously written and illustrated picture book biography.  (borrowed from

In the library this week, not only will we read Monsieur Marceau, but 3-5 graders will also play a game of charades and use iPads to observe videos of Mr. Marceau and other famous mimes.  Thank you to Merrily McInnis, librarian at Curtsinger Elementary, for sharing this lesson with us.
