Now there is a way to bring the magic of some of the world's most timeless stories into your classroom or library. Created by acclaimed author Anthony Fredericks, Fairy Tales Readers Theatre presents a dynamic compendium of exciting tales—and some slightly irreverent variations thereof—in a format guaranteed to excite, amuse, and delight every youngster.

In Fairy Tales Readers Theatre, stories become scripts, with students playing the parts of Rapunzel, Rumplestiltskin, Cinderella, the Three Billy Goats Gruff, and more. This format encourages students to take an active role in their own language arts development while enhancing overall fluency. For teachers and librarians, Fredericks offers a wealth of suggestions and strategies for engaging students in the dynamics of literacy acquisition through the allure of readers theatre.
