Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5�9—Clean, straitlaced and with a sometimes corny sense of humor, these skits will be a welcome resource for teachers who want to incorporate a bit of drama into their classrooms. The majority of the selections feature present-day scenes of school, friends, and home, usually addressing conduct of life, but a few of them veer into the fantastical with actors playing cows, cats, and dogs. Actors are encouraged to play these scenes standing up and with light costuming to suggest the animal being portrayed. Most of the selections are for two to three players, but educators will be hard-pressed to find a collection that features short scenes for groups of 10�16 specifically tailored for classroom use. Flexible casting is possible for quite a few of the pieces.—Madigan McGillicuddy, Los Angeles Public Library
