2/21: Children’s Book of the Week; Putting On A Play

Putting On A Play
Putting On A Play Book Review
by Paul Dubois Jacobs and Jennifer Swender

A fun and accessible book of activities geared mainly for kids 8-12, this book gives kids some basic tools for writing their script, designing their set, and making their own (no sew!) costumes. Provides ideas for pirate, princess, explorer, circus, and other themed plays, along with some storyline breakdowns for scenes within them. A great book for kids who love performing, but also a fantastic way to get kids excited about working together for an awesome payoff.
