Story Plays by Vivian French

11/16/2012

Walker Books reputation for picture books is undoubted, and they have brought all those skills to bear on their Story Plays - retellings of the original stories with parts for a group of children. Colour coded, and with strongly patterned language, Vivian has worked her magic on Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, Sarah Hayes' This is the Bear and her own The Gingerbread Boy illustrated by John Prater.

Julia Donaldson, the current Children's Laureate and  huge fan of using drama to introduce books and reading (as anybody who has seen her fantastic events will know) has declared the Story Plays "...excellent for reading aloud!"
