Overview

This groundbreaking new series is for truly young actors—monologues, scenes, and technique book for the elementary school set. Each book builds on the one before it, so skills grow as students grow. Often, young children are given work written for older actors that is difficult for them to understand and retain. This material is comprehensible, relatable, and fun. For all the young characters and performers, there is finally a book for you!

And within this series, an exciting collection that breaks down barriers: Square pegs don't fit into round holes. It's that simple.

Specifically for young actors of Hispanic descent, M. Ramirez has written a group of books for second, third, fourth generation immigrant kids who don't often feel included in a lot of the literature they're surrounded with. References to abuelos, abuelas, and other cultural specifics help make these performance pieces a little more accessible to kids who might or might not be speaking English as a second language. all with a specific flavor that will help young actors find their voices and stretch themselves, performing pieces that speak not only about them, but directly to them.

Because of the Latino flavor incorporated into this material, these kids can focus on what they are meant to focus on- performing - without any cultural barriers.

KIDS: These books tell you about how to act and give you some excellent characters to play! There are also many, many games and activities. (P.S. They may also make you the smartest kid you know!)

TEACHERS: This series provides ample material for classroom use. In addition, the Teacher's Guide will give tips and ideas to use inclassrooms.

PARENTS: 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. These books are both fun and educational.

AGENTS/MANAGERS: These monologues are immediate and active, with different emotions and levels within each monologue. Great for auditions.

Fasten your seat belt! We're going on a trip! Use this book to act, to learn, to play, to dream, to discover. This book is all about places-places you know, places in the U.S., places in the world, and imaginary/far-out places Take your friends and family along for the ride. Get ready to take off for heart-pounding adventures!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 2-6

The first book is divided into four parts: familiar people (the doctor, the lunch lady), famous Americans (Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman), famous foreigners (Henry the XIII, Anastasia), and imaginary people and folk heroes (Alice in Wonderland, Robin Hood). Each monologue concludes with an activity that ranges from drawing a picture of the character to completing a diary entry and brainstorming answers about the character in an actor's notebook. (Children are encouraged to write in the book, which is problematic for libraries.) The monologues and activities will fire the imaginations of young students. While the illustrations are average, they provide an additional activity for students, allowing them to imagine and draw a costume for the types of characters they will be reading about in the following section. My Third Monologue Book is also divided into four parts: places you know (the woods, grandma's house), places in the United States (Laredo, TX; Flagstaff, AZ), foreign countries (Italy, Morocco), and imaginary and far-out places (Hogwarts, an alien world). However, the majority of the selections take place in the United States and the fewest focus on imaginary places. Concluding activities range from figuring out where the character is, to circling or underlining grammar clues, to completing a travel journal. Both books are good additions as they suggest well-rounded activities for students to practice reading, writing, speaking, and both critical and imaginative thinking.-Terrilyn Fleming, Colby Public Schools, KS
