Stories Alive! was a big hit with my second graders! It was both entertaining and educational. Every student had the opportunity to be actively involved during the group activities. Students also loved seeing some of their friends and even one of their teachers participate in the performance! They had a blast, but also learned important life lessons throughout. Thanks, George!
