This Is the Bear Story Play

By Vivian French, Sarah Hayes
Illustrated by Helen Craig

A dramatic version of a favourite picture book in which children join in taking different parts of the reading.

Offering a very different storytelling experience, this Walker Read Me Story Play is a dramatic version of a favourite picture book written for four voices. Each part is clearly marked by different colour bands so children can join in. Perfect for reading aloud, this innovative and beautifully designed book offers a simple, clever and utterly enjoyable way of sharing stories and learning to read. The Walker Read Me Story Plays are written in strongly patterned language by Vivian French to cater for readers with different levels of experience. There are brief teaching notes at the back which give parents and teachers helpful advice on sharing the books with children.
