A Guide to Picture-book Drama

This guide aims to help you to make dramas out of picture books, which children at any stage of primary school can develop into a presentation for an audience of their own choosing – invited guests, another class or younger pupils. The step-by-step suggestions aim to inspire you to try this approach with a whole host of picture books and to lead your children towards reading for real pleasure!

Julia and Malcolm perform The Nut Tree poem with children in Stirling on Day 6 of the Laureate Library Tour. Julia said that it was extra enjoyable as some of the children acting it out were already dressed as trees (from the “Hansel and Gretel” forest).

When you ask children to make a drama out of a picture book you can help them discover the impact of the language and the ‘shape’ of the story by choosing music or making sound effects to accompany their presentation or retelling of the story.
