After several chapters on acting, with good discriminations between the youngest grades and those in third grade and beyond, eight fables are scripted for narrative-mime presentation. The first example, done very thoroughly, is LM. Others include TH, CP (the crow kicks the pitcher in one of the best little designs!), DS, SW (Let's see who can make them take their coats off), FS, AD, and TMCM. Twenty-seven additional fables are presented with instructions for adapting them to drama. There are questions for each story and an annotated bibliography. Thistle makes the fables work well as stories to dramatize.
