Slice of Life with a Twist... This book features abundant humor that naturally appeals to kids, yet tickles adults, too. The plays are suitable for simply reading aloud or full dramatic performances and are "just right" in length - long enough to be make a point and brief enough to capture attention. I'd recommend this book for a variety of settings, including classroom, home, and youth groups. Kids will love it!
