"Jenkins uses the many holidays and special days of the year to write original short plays for readers theater production for middle school kids. The topics all center on various teen problems encountered in this complex and emerging culture….A great writing and reading idea worth pursuing."

-

Teacher Librarian

"These scripts featuring realistic characters reflect typical situations that arise during a school year, from blending in on the first day of junior high school to snow days. Each script is accompanied by book suggestions on the same theme. While the volume targets students in grades six to eight, many fifth graders would enjoy these entertaining language-arts activities."
