Synopsis

Shakespeare and the Young Writer by Fred (Writer, journalist and commentator, UK) Sedgwick

Shakespeare and the Young Writer presents fascinating and impressive accounts of primary school children encountering Shakespeare's work for the first time. Fred Sedgwick shows how careful selection of scenes, lines and images from the plays and sonnets - in their original language - can be used to great effect as the starting point for children's writing. Examples of children's work show just how powerful the stimulus can be. The book will be of great value to all teachers looking for new ideas to improve their practice in teaching literacy.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
