Publisher Comments:

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.

Her success in introducing Shakespeare to children is reflected in her growing international reputation. Her books and workshops for teachers have captured the attention and imagination of parents, educators, and lovers of Shakespeare around the world, including the American National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association. Among other commendations, Lois Burdett has received Encyclopedia Britannica's National Award for Early Childhood Education, Canada's Meritorious Service Medal, the Canadian Teachers' Federation's Hilroy Fellowship, and two writers' awards. Burdett's many speaking engagements have included the International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English. Her books, magazine articles, presentations and media interviews are testimony to her strong influence in the education community, where she has also been instrumental in helping teachers to incorporate Shakespeare into early grade curricula.

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

Synopsis:

In this full color, 64 page book, students as young as seven show an amazing understanding and appreciation of Macbeth and its theme--the consequences of ambition and greed. It is written in rhyming couplets and illustrated by the sutends of Stratford's Hamlet Elementary School.

I ordered this book after our 5th grade class read a biography on Shakespeare and they got interested in him. WE LOVE IT!!!! We are having SO much fun reading Macbeth and analyzing the story. The students are really into it and can't wait to get back to it each day. I thank Lois Burdett for making Shakespeare available and enjoyable for elementary students!
