Review quote

If you are looking for more fun ways to teach Shakespeare to your children, the Shakespeare Can Be Fun series by Lois Burdett is an excellent way to introduce the playwright's many works. The author takes Shakespeare's entire works and puts them into a poetic, flowing version that is easy on children's attention spans whileleaving the crux of the works intact. It's helpful for mom and dad as well. The books also offer suggestions for lesson plans.--Tere Scott"St. Louis Homeschooling Examiner, Los Angeles edit" (06/24/2009)
