Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This is Fredericks's third book of readers'-theatre scripts based on tales and legends. Part one offers practical advice on using this technique for teaching and learning, and gives suggestions for successful presentations. Twenty-four "wild and wacky scripts" follow, complete with stage directions. According to the book, they were written for grades three through eight. However, the language is too tough for children on the young end of that spectrum and most seventh and eighth graders wouldn't be caught dead reading "Goldilocks and the Three Hamsters." Unfinished scripts for students to write their own conclusions and lists for further reading and ideas for writing original scripts are also included.-Betty S. Evans, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
