Reviews

This resource brings together 10 readers theater scripts aimed at stimulating the imagination and literacy learning of middle school boys. The scripts tell stories about mythical and fantastic creatures, tricksters, and monsters from African, American Indian, Arabian, Greek, Indian, Irish, and Scandinavian cultures. They tell stories about Medusa, Vishnu, Siegfried, Gilgamesh, and others. Background information and production notes are given for each. - Reference & Research Book News This text is a good fit for professionals looking for scripts appropriate for elementary and middle school youth. The clear instructions make it an acceptable introduction to readers theater, but the unique scripts also offer a solid addition to existing readers theater collections. - VOYA ...the fast-paced action, sound effects, and sometimes gruesome subject matter are sure to keep participants motivated. Cooperating teachers and librarians can use these plays to ignite an interest in mythology in their students, while at the same time helping them gain confidence in speaking and fluency while they entertain their fellow students. - Catholic Library World

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
