Midsummer Night's Dream: Shakespeare Can Be Fun Reviews

Shakespeare is presented in a manner that is understandable to children without lessening the quality of the work.--Sheree Van Vreede "Children's Literature "
Makes it come wonderfully alive for young students.--Curriculum Administrator (06/01/1998)
Included in the "Great Books for Children" program.--Canadian Toy Testing Council (01/01/2003)
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.-- (06/24/2009)
