A Shakespeare Children’s Story Boxed Set

From Hamlet to King Lear to Romeo and Juliet, the books collected in the Shakespeare Children’s Story set introduce kids to some of the most revered works in the Western literary canon. Each selected play is rewritten in narrative form to make it easier for young ones to follow, and in the process complicated plots are simplified and made suitable for young children. Accompanying illustrations further engage readers. The set of 20 books helps kids build their reading skills, nurtures their love of literature, and weakens their interest in becoming a corrupt king or queen.

  • 20 iconic works of Shakespeare
  • Simplified narrative adaptations
  • Suitable for children
  • Boxed set
  • Softcover books
  • 64 pages per book
  • Recommended for children aged 9–12 and Harold Bloom

Very cute book collection. However, none of the pages are colored and are not aesthetically pleasing for some kids. (The drawings/stories are great though). My little one wanted to color the pages herself, which is not a bad idea to make the pages colorful and would engage children more with the books.

The books were well done, but smaller than I had expected. Tiny, actually.

They do their job. Lots of pics and accessible language. I'm planning to use it for my English Learner students and students with special needs. Good resource for an inclusive classroom.
