Reviews

...offers teachers and librarians an exceptional vehicle for collaboration, perhaps expanding upon a unit in a reading textbook, introducing a biography lesson, or concluding an author study. As much of the information is nonfiction, students work not only on their fluency, but also on their comprehension of expository text. Thirty-six different plays allow for one every school week if desired, ensuring every student has an opportunity to shine with an important role. Highly recommended for grades 1-4. - Catholic Library World This volume contains 36 readers theater scripts relating to the lives of picture book authors, poets, and illustrators to help students become better readers. It has a script for each week of the school year, on individuals such as Margaret Wise Brown, Bill Peet, James Marshall, Bill Martin Jr., Beatrix Potter, Stan Berenstain, Shel Silverstein, and Tasha Tudor. The reproducible scripts, which are meant to take up a 30-minute class period, are aimed at different reading levels
