Synopsis

Midsummer Night's Dream for Kids by Lois Burdett

For more than 20 years, Lois Burdett has been introducing Shakespeare to primary school pupils. Working with her students, many as young as seven, she makes Shakespeare's plays come wonderfully alive for young eyes and ears. The texts are rewritten as simple rhyming verse and illustrated by her pupils' own lively colour illustrations of the characters and the action. Her books and workshops for teachers have captured the attention and imagination of parents, educators, and lovers of Shakespeare around the world.

Reviews

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.--Tere Scott St. Louis Homeschooling Examiner, Los Angeles edit (06/24/2009)
