"I teach drama classes to children of all ages. I bought this book trying to find some plays that were easy enough for the little ones to read and found exactly what I was looking for! Not only are there short, easy to read plays for younger children, there are also some that are a little more grown up, and very funny! I was able to find plays for all of my classes, ranging from ages 6-16. Marvellous!"
