I would highly recommend this book. We followed the suggestions that were made by the author by writing the lines in the props. We also seized the other suggest of giving the parts to each child weeks in advance. The children were able to practice their lines at home with their parents. We came together two hours before the play and rehearsed as a group. The play was enjoyed by all who attended the performance. This book was awesome.
I bought this book on a whim, having come across it when browsing CBD's website. Ours is a small church with combined age groups, and the plays were perfect for us. The scripts are easily adaptable to accommodate various ages and abilities. One feature of the plays that I really liked was that many of the lines were written on one or another of the props, or scenery sets! They were incorporated right into the play, so you needn't worry if you have children (or adult narrators!) who won't remember their lines. Great book. Can't wait to see what our Sunday School group does with this.
I had been looking for awhile a short (15 minute) Christmas plays that were respectful enough for a somewhat conservative church yet would not require more than 2-3 practices and I found it! This is a great collection of plays, namely one called "Tooooo busy". Great buy!
