Shakespeare for Kids
I remember being introduced to William Shakespeare’s writing in high school. The elegant writing style was difficult to understand during my teenage years. But…What If?…What if I was introduced to Shakespeare when I was younger? Would I have had a clue what the storyline was about. You know, before your English Literature teacher gave in and let ya watch the movie.
Shakespeare for Kids is a collection of 5 of Shakespeare’s classic tales written in a way that they are more easily understood by children. Each book opens with a short “About Shakespeare” lesson to introduce readers to their poet, playwright, author.
The books then go into main character descriptions. As the actual stories begin you will notice that they are simple and very easy to understand for young readers. Adults trying to get a grip on Old English Iambic Pentameter can also benefit from this collection. If you, as a parent, feel your child is ready to read Shakespeare’s tales, Shakespeare for Kids is the perfect place to start.
Five classic works fully illustrated and adapted for young readers, Shakespeare Stories for Kids collects five important plays in a beautifully crafted slipcase for the beginning bard. A treasure of delight for any child beginning his or her adventure with the greatest playwright in history.
This volume includes:
- A Midsummer Night’s Dream
- Much Ado About Nothing
- All’s Well That Ends Well, and
- The Tempest
