Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare are a prose form of Shakespeare's plays for children by the writer siblings Charles and Mary Lamb. I've had a copy of it for a long time, and I'd originally planned to read the chapter from this book at the same time I read the play.

    These distillations of Shakespeare's works are very readable, understandable, and read-aloudable. My 14 year old daughter, a very proficient reader, preferred the writing style of this book by the Lambs over the Shakespeare redone by E. Nesbit (language is slightly more archaic) and Geraldine McCaughrean (retellings are quite good, illustrations are rather ghoulish). She preferred the overall style and flow of the Lamb's book. I then read two selections from each author and agreed with her opinion (PS---we don't always agree).

    Independent read for grades 5-12. Read aloud to grades 2/3 to 5/6. I highly recommend that children view Shakespeare's works on video at the outset. It helps to get a feel for the cadence of the language used . And, after all, he wrote his works to be performed. Taming of the Shrew with Burton/Taylor is a good place to start. My children enjoyed that one from grades 2-12. Younger children love the "fight" scene where Burton pursues Taylor and forces her to consent to marriage. It is a romp !
