The Book People have a 16 book Shakespeare Story Collection up for grabs for just £9.99 - this is a great way to introduce kids to his stories and bring Shakespeare to life, rather than wait until they do it in English at school and kill off any enthusiasm for his work.
I think most people like the idea of being able to say they've read Shakespeare, but BOY can it be heavy going sometimes!
Doing Shakespeare at school doesn't make it any easier either and if anything tends to put kids off more, so HURRAH for books like these.
The tales that make up this Shakespeare story collection have been rewritten to make them easy to understand, fun and accessible to young children.
This, in my mind, is a good thing as Shakespeare's stories are great and the illustrations that accompany the tales add an extra dimension to the fun factor too.
The title which make up the collection are:
- Julius Caesar
- King Lear
- The Merchant of Venice
- The Taming of the Shrew
- Twelfth Night
- As you Like it
- A Midsummer Night's Dream
- Much Ado About Nothing
- The Tempest
- Henry V
- Richard III
- Romeo and Juliet
- Antony and Cleopatra
Single item delivery charges apply if you only order this and costs £1.95.
Happy 'to be or not to be' and all that!
