Serious Play with Actor, Singer, Producer John Tartaglia

POSTED ON 04/14/11
In This Episode

John, who’s been acting since he was a 16-year-old puppeteer for Sesame Street, thinks parents could gain insight into their kids’ emotional well-being just by putting a puppet in their hands.

Angela Santomero and John Tartaglia
