Synopsis

William Shakespeare by

This highly informative poster features a concise biography of William Shakespeare, as well as a timeline of life and works and a list of his plays in approximate chronological order. A map of Stratford allows children to build a picture of Shakespeare's life, while a list of words such as 'fishified', 'flap-mouthed' and 'maggot-pie' is provided for them to try creating a Shakespearean insult. A diagram of the Globe fills the centre of the poster, and synopses of significant plays are accompanied by artworks inspired by Shakespeare's writing. Information is organised into the topics: Elizabethan theatres; the Globe Theatre, the sonnets, three stages in writing a play; the First Folio; the Royal Shakespeare Company; Shakespeare's language; a typical Elizabethan theatre; the plays; Sir Francis Bacon; different types of play.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

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!

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
