Overview

For all the characters and performers under eight, there is finally a book for you!
To the show-offs, dreamers, and make-believers, To artists, storytellers, and playground yellers, To those who audition and those of dramatic disposition, This is for you! This is for you! This is for you and your best friend, too. This book is for truly young actors-the five- to seven-year-old set. If you've got a natural performer in the house, this book provides some simple pieces for auditioning, horsing around, or performing in the living room. Inside you'll find imaginative "what if " pieces for would-be princesses, cowboys, robots, and superheroes as well as real-life issues like unfair bedtimes, making new friends, and the horrible taste of broccoli. At this stage in life there are lots of firsts, too, like going to a new school and losing your teeth, so there will be plenty of topics for children to connect with. Often, young children are given work written for older actors that is difficult for them to understand and retain. While not dumbed down, this material is comprehensible, relatable, and fun.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-6 Dabrowski offers short, accessible selections on common topics such as games, families, food, friends, school, and wishes. The true-to-life experiences and emotions are delivered in a child's voice and run the gamut from funny to serious. In "Mary Jane," a girl speaking to a nun realizes too late that she has said too much; in "Hannah," a youngster tells her parents why she hates broccoli; and Emmett sounds off about his bossy older sister. The book has several classroom applications, including public speaking, memorization, journal writing, and storytelling. While there are other monologue titles for elementary children, including Ruth Mae Roddy's Minute Monologues for Kids (Dramaline, 2000), Janet Milstein's Cool Characters for Kids!: 71 One-Minute Monologues (Smith and Kraus, 2002), and Chamber Stevens's Magnificent Monologues for Kids (Sandcastle, 1999), the selections in First Monologue are much shorter and easier to memorize or analyze.-Terrilyn Fleming, Colby Public Schools, KS
