Shakespeare for Children
When it comes to poetry and prose, William Shakespeare is your man. Much of his work is emotional and beautiful. He is thought to have been the world's great writers.
"Shakespeare for Children" by Wordwindow is a delightful storybook containing a collection of quotes from William Shakespeare's collected plays known as the First Folio, which was published in 1623. Wordwindow states that the text in the book is presented exactly as Shakespeare is thought to have written it. Wordwindow collected many pieces from Shakespeare's First Folio and designed their book to be suitable and enjoyable for children today.
This book would make an excellent addition to any teacher's lesson plans as words or parts of words are highlighted with the intention of emphasizing the syllables, which leads to easier pronunciation. These are words Wordwindow felt "should be spoken with emphasis" where they hopes to "give children a sense of style, and a hint of what it is like to actually perform on stage".
Shakespeare's quotes include pieces from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Titus Andronicus, The Tempest and more.
Children are sure to enjoy the vivid illustrations that adorn each quote/page.
This reviewer and her three children thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and the works from a poetic genius - Shakespeare. We highly recommend it.
