Dramatic Reader for Lower Grades

Florence HOLBROOK (1860 - 1932)

Despite the title's bland sounding name, this book is a charming collection of 16 plays for children. These little plays—well-known stories done into dialogue—were written for children who like to imagine themselves living with their favorite characters in forest, in palace, or in fairyland. Included are Cinderella, Robin Hood, William Tell, Hansel and Gretel and many more. (Summary by Maria Therese and the introduction)
