This is a straightforward collection of fifty fables divided up according to their suitability for the first through the fourth grades, respectively. In readers theatre the focus is on effective reading of the script rather than on a dramatic, memorized presentation (vii). Each fable here gets a two-page spread including a summary, presentation suggestions, props, delivery suggestions, a list of characters, a copyright-free illustration repeated in two different sizes, and a full script of the fable. Each page is ready for xeroxing, with copyright information at its bottom. I notice that WS is done in the poorer form (115).
