This book like the other ones that Marcia Williams writes is a soft cover book that is in comic book format. The wording is great for young kids and inside the comic strip there are excerpts of the actual stories being told. They are very short versions probably around six pages for each story. All in all Marcia does a great job putting the stories together and I enjoy reading them to my 6 year old.
These are amazing books! Much of the original dialogue is used, with simple explanations for kids to follow the stories, and the art is beautiful. My third grader has learned to love Shakespeare and attends plays eagerly now that she can understand the stories. This is great for at home or in a classroom!
My 8YO loves these books. They give her the opportunity to learn a number of things in a format accessible to her age-level. Shakespeare in particular can be a bit heavy, but the way the stories are laid out in this book makes it so any one can follow the plot. HIGHLY recommended.
Illustrated Shakespeare tales for little kids. A few more actual Shake quotes could be more useful, but nevertheless a decent introduction to the bard for little kids. With any hope, they will quickly outgrow this and move on to the real thing.
My 7 year old son is familiar with Shakespeare stories because of this book and it's companion volume. He picked it up and read them all himself. It is engaging for those too young to sit down with the original works.
