If you are teaching drama to children ages 2-8, you simply must have this list! We polled hundreds of drama teachers and consolidated their favorite titles into one massive collection. It’s organized by age, with the titles for younger children listed first. Included are five suggestions for ways to use the books in drama class!
Each listing includes:
- Image of the book cover with a clickable link to Amazon
- Title, author, and age range
- Learning subject or theme
- Short description of the story
- Many include links to printable supporting materials or lesson plans for the story
This list took over a week of full-time work to create, and you can have it for basically $1.
Most people who teach drama to young children have a few favorite books that they use over and over. The children still have fun, but the teacher can become bored with the same material. Rarely do these teachers have time to go find other titles and figure out how to use them. That’s why this list is so amazing. It was created in the spirit of teachers uplifting and sharing with each other.
Use this list with How to Turn Stories into Plays, and you could plan an entire year of drama lessons for young children! Also, download this Book-Themed Creative Drama Lesson.
