Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare
Edith Nesbit, the author of Beautiful Stories from Shakespeare, felt passionately that young children should enjoy Shakespeare’s great works. She set about to retell his plays in a language that children would not only understand, but delight in. This is a marvelous introduction to the works of Shakespeare that ALL will enjoy.

Well written stories! A great starter version for young children. I bought a hard copy of this book. My six-year-old twins listened to the stories from this iPhone app, while reading the book. It took a few times until they understood the story "The Midsummer Night's Dream". Then weNow we are on a second story, "Measure by Measure." I thank the volunteers for contributing their time and making the classics available to others.
