Readers Theatre in Rhyme features 22 reproducible tales scripted in rollicking and sometimes whimsical rhythms and rhymes. These include well-known traditional tales from around the world and a modern version of an urban Red Riding Hood adapted from a story written by a young Manitoba author. Using these scripts is an engaging way for older and younger readers alike to work in a collaborative learning environment and to learn the importance of critical listening. Teachers will enjoy the unique approach to instruction. These scripts are invitations to all—the struggling reader, the ESL learner, and the most competent reader in the class.
