The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything is the perfect book for dramatic play! Giggles and excitement are sure to happen when you encourage your child to join in the refrain and use different voices and movements or maybe even add props in order to truly bring the story alive.
By listening to the story and waiting for just the right time join in, participating in this type of dramatic play can help build listening skills, self-confidence and pre-reading skills. Chances are this book will never be read the same way again!
