What an adorable, interactive way to bring a story to life! Story-boxes are a new approach to developing early language skills and storytelling.
Popular fairy tales and folktales from around the world have been developed into story-boxes containing stylized characters and props. They also contain booklets that retell the stories while you act them out.
Little One Inch is the Japanese folktale of a small boy's determination to overcome the expectations of others and defeat the dreaded Oni monster.
Each story-box includes hand-painted, resin pieces and other unique props. Designed by award-winning teacher, author and illustrator, Steve Light. Quality crafted characters include: Little One Inch, the Princess, the Prince, the Big Fish, and the Oni Monster.

I bought this for my 5 year old son along with Rapunzel and The Girl Who Loved Danger.
We read books every night, but I wanted to add something new.
We started out with me reading the enclosed story card and I would move the characters around. Then I would read the card and he would act out the scene. Now, he tells me the story on his own and acts out the story all by himself.
It's been a great way to get him to learn to tell a story (as he is not quite reading on his own), but he's also tired of me always doing the talking when I read to him.
Only downside: It took me a few times through to figure out what to do with the tissue paper. Other story boxes you can find a 'demo' with Steve Light on line, so you can see how he makes it work, but this one I couldn't find a demo. It wasn't obvious to me to put it into the belly of the monster until a few times through the story. But, once I figured that out, the telling became even more dramatic and fun (especially for a 5 year old!)
