Publisher's Description of Twelfth Night for Kids

"Who is William Shakespeare?" For more than 20 years, Lois Burdett has asked that question of her elementary school students in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, leading them on a voyage of discovery that brings the Bard to life for boys and girls ages seven and up.

Twelfth Night for Kids, written in rhyming couplets is suitable for staging as class plays as well as reading aloud.

Category Description for Shakespeare For Kids

Truly enjoyable adaptations of classic Shakespeare! Author Lois Burdett has successfully introduced her second grade classes to Shakespeare for over twenty years. These 64-page books contain simplified versions that are written in rhyme. What makes each book so delightful is the contribution of Ms. Burdett's class. Each play contains their ingenuous commentaries and colorful illustrations, which clearly express their thoughts and feelings about the play. These books can be used as a basis for activities such as writing a character diary, holding a debate, or for the really ambitious - performing the entire play! A short list of activity suggestions is located in the back of each book. Some discussion about antiquated language may be required during reading. ~ Anh
