Comment: Re: SHK 14.2322 Shakespeare for Kids?
There's a beautiful book entitled Poetry for Young People: William
Shakespeare (New York: Sterling Publishing Company, Inc. 2000). It's
edited by David Scott Kastan and his daughter Marina Kastan, and
illustrated by Glenn Harrington. The book pairs brief selections from
several of the plays (Portia's "quality of mercy" speech, for example)
with gorgeous illustrations. Each selection has a glossary on the same
page. Really a beautiful book and a great way to introduce children to
Shakespeare. Think Arden 3 picture book for kids.
