    (verified owner):

    Everyone likes to listen to a good story, particularly if it is told well. In Story Vines and Readers Theatre: Getting Started, Marlene McKay provides educators with two valuable strategies. This book includes practical how to instructions on getting started, its use in the development of listening, reading, writing, representing, working with others, plus its photographs, personal anecdotes, assessment ideas and other components make it a valuable addition to the teachers’ personal, professional library. It is high on my list of must-have teaching resources!
