Every youngster in the class, regardless of reading ability or acting talent, can take part and will love being involved. Diana Jenkins's experience as a special education teacher shines through. Spotlight on Saints! is terrific!"

"Spotlight on Saints! will surely keep children attentive and engaged while they learn how saints can help us in many situations. The creative style of readers' theater invites children to learn about the saints while having fun performing.
