This series features classic Shakespeare retold with graphic color illustrations. Educators using the Dale-Chall vocabulary system adapted each title. Word for word audios feature professional actors and sound effects, not just momotonous monologue. Students build confidence through reading practice. Research shows that the more students read, the better their vocabulary, their ability to read, and their knowledge of the world.
