Most of the Reader's Theater materials currently available are not multi-leveled or well balanced, designed for too many readers, and can require too much preparation by the teacher. If they are "color-coded," only the name in the margin will be in color. With Playbooks®, each reader's complete dialogue text appears in a different color. Don't accept inferior imitations of our multi-leveled and color-coded reader's theater. Only Playbooks® have this patented advanced format!
