100 monologues for young children
By Kristen Dabrowski
Far too often, young children — the five- to eight-year old set — are given monologues written for older actors, making it difficult for them to understand and retain. This book is truly for young actors! While not dumbed-down, the monologues provided here are comprehensible, relatable and fun! You and your young actors will find imaginative “what if” pieces for would-be princesses, cowboys, robots and superheroes as well as real-life issues like unfair bedtimes, making new friends and the horrible taste of broccoli. Importantly, these monologues change mood or direction so the actor can show a range of emotions. A few are particularly brief, specific and finely tuned for early readers. Notably, the topics, language and even the print-size in this book are all kid-tested and approved.
