How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare

Winner of the Falstaff Award for Best Shakespeare Book, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare provides the tools teachers and parents need to inspire an understanding and appreciation of Shakespeare’s works in children. Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Ken Ludwig and featuring an introduction by actor John Lithgow, this book explains Ludwig’s technique, which begins with memorizing short passages from the plays and colorfully incorporating historic context about the time period, as well as discussions on craft elements such as diction, imagery, and rhyme.
