I’ve read another picture book-bought it at Hastings in Auburn yesterday-Casey at the Bat by Ernest Lawrence Thayer. Casey at the Bat is a poem/ballad about a famous baseball player. This is a cute picture book about a young boy at his baseball game-it starts out with the story of the boy, inserts the poem, and finishes the story about the boy. Very cute!
Last year we did “Casey at the Bat” as a readers theater, so this year I am going to read them this picture book first before we do the readers theater. This poem has LOTS of high level vocabulary in it!!!!
Here is a link to the readers theater script-Aaron Shepard has lots of great scripts.
