My 10-year-old son reluctantly read Hamlet for Kids with me for one of his weekly writing assignments. He griped about it, but I think he actually enjoyed reading it. He wanted to see part of Branagh's Hamlet movie with me later, and even stuck around while I found several key parts that I had already passed.
The rhyming is so clever, and perfectly tells the story! It is very understandable for younger students, but uses excellent vocabulary words. I love the notes written by the students that are from the point of view of the character. They seemed to drive home what was really going on in case my son hadn't completely understood it when reading the rhyming text.
I plan to read another one with him in 2 months or so! (I plan to read ALL of them myself!)

Not as well laid out as I like. Very busy pages. Wanted something my kiddos could read and understand on their own. Will keep looking.

I used this to prepare my 9 year old son to see his first Shakespeare play (Simulcast Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch). We read it 2-3 times and it was a WONDERFUL preparation for the real play. He followed the play perfectly and loved it. It really helped instill a love for the Bard. I highly recommend it! Follow up reading it with words from the real play and then a trip to the theatre.

It's true, these books gave my son a lifelong love of Shakespeare! They are wonderufl for adults too.. looking to understand and have fun with the main message in each passage. They really deserve a high spot in the literary world.

Love it!!! This helps make this story so reachable for kids, even my 3 yr old loves the sing song rhyming. The illustrations are inspiring for my guys to show them, they too can draw. Can't praise this book enough and I'm excited to collect her other books.
