Ed Vere

Grumpy Frog is a funny and touching book about friendship from best-loved, award-winning author Ed Vere. Find learning activities to explore the book in this resource!

Picture books are full of quirky characters and dramatic situations, perfect for providing children with opportunities to put on a performance. If you're looking for some quick, low-tech ideas for using picture books as the basis for role-playing and reading out loud, this resource from theatre practitioner Amy Hall Gibson is the perfect starting point. The resource uses Ed Vere's fantastic picture books as examples, but you can use these ideas with pretty much any book to get your class enjoying the thrill of performance!
