A Japanese tradition since the 12th century, Kamishibai literally means: "paper theatre" It is a technique based on images which move around in a butai (wooden theater box) with three doors. A kamishibai is made up of a set of numbered cardboard sheets which tell a story. Each sheet sets the scene with an episode of the story, with the illustration on the back, and text on the front which is read aloud by the narrator. This form of representation helps children to concentrate and to immerse themselves in the magical world of stories. The adult can interrupt the story at any moment by playing the "mystery" card, showing a question mark, to awaken the childrens' imagination and let them interact.
