Rarely do mainstream publishers feel they can justify the publication of plays so we’re particularly delighted with this new edition of Play Time, a lovely collection, from the queen of song and verse, perfect for the family to act out or for teachers to enjoy with their pupils in class. Most children love acting and it’s a tremendous way to improve their reading within a familiar environment and for that budding actor to show off their talent to family and friends.

Synopsis

Play Time Plays for All Ages by the Bestselling Author of The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson

PLAY TIME includes eleven fun-to-act short plays for all children to enjoy, especially those in primary school (Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2). Each play comes complete with helpful guidance on target age, running time and cast. Ranging from adaptations of traditional tales (e.g., the legend of Persephone and TheThree Billy Goats Gruff) to original and contemporary short plays, Julia Donaldson has produced an entertaining, simple, satisfying collection.
