My daughter has brought home a Junie B. Jones book from the school library every week for the past month. This week she brought home “Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! (P.S. So Does May).” She gets a kick out of repeating that title over and over.
We’re only on chapter two, but so far she’s enjoyed the story. She relates to Junie B. not getting along with another student, but at the same time realizes that Junie B. is not always in the right. I’m enjoying reading the book and watching her reaction to the characters.
The Roanoke Children’s Theatre in October did “Pinkalicious: The Musical” based on the books by Elizabeth Kann and Victoria Kann and in May of next year will be doing “Stuart Little” based on the book by E.B. White.
I haven’t been to any of these shows, but love the idea of theater productions for children based on beloved books.
Have you been to any of these? Would you recommend them? What other books would you like to see made into a play or musical?
