As a library assistant and a mother I really liked this book. It’s a great break down on how to break Shakespeare up into small parts making it easier for your children to understand it. By breaking it into smaller bites to learn week by week children as young as 6 could memorize and learn Shakespeare. I plan on using this book with not only my teenager who is beginning to read Shakespeare in school but also my daughter once she learns how to read. Shakespeare can be confusing when you read it all at once but feeding your child a bite at a time makes it easier to read and understand. I think this approach works great because the child doesn’t feel overwhelmed by what they are reading.
I would recommend this book to only parents but even teachers and librarians as a way to make Shakespeare easier to read and understand. I wish this book was around when I started reading Shakesepeare because a little at a time would definitly have been better than slogging through words that confused my younger self.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this a 5. Take the time to check this book out and learn how to make Shakespeare fun for kids of all ages.
