Acting Out the Story

Through Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, we receive one free book in the mail each month. It's a really great program that you can participate in, too. Click here to find out if your location is covered by the program.

One of the books we received, which Ava and I both particularly like, is My Lucky Day by Keiko Kasza. The other day, Ava wanted to pretend she was the character Mr. Fox from the book, so we began acting out the story together. I was surprised at how well she knew the book and understood the storyline. Obviously, some books are easier to act out than others, but it's an idea you may want to try sometime with your child(ren).

We didn't use any props and we didn't follow the book word-for-word. We just had fun and followed the storyline. If you haven't read the book, I'm not sure how much sense our little play will make to you, but none-the-less, here is a video of our rendition of My Lucky Day...
