Reviews

A nice book to read before a trip to the theater, to build excitement and set expectations. It could also inspire your child to create their own plays and puppet shows. -- Taryn Villarreal of The Overly Attached Reader A great introduction to the theater. -- Ryan Franklin, Mattoon Public Library A good book to read before a trip to the theater, to build excitement and set expectations. It could also be used as an introduction on a unit about theatre, acting or culture. It could also inspire your child to create their own plays and puppet shows.A good book to have in school libraries or teacher resource areas. -- Carla Johnson-Hicks, Elementary Educator An informative book about theatre...Fun activities at the end round out the book. -- Tara Hutson, London Public Library A fine book to teach older children about the theater. Sarah Fetterman, Upper St. Clair Township Library Five stars. Delightfully illustrated, this book includes descriptions of all aspects of play production--from sets, rehearsals, and stage management to public viewing and critics. Puppetry, comedy, classics, and tragedy--it's all here. Take a quiz and play a picture game in the back of the book when you're finished.+ -- Biblio Filer
