Lois Burdett has made Shakespeare's Macbeth accessible for children. The story is written in rhyming couplets making it child friendly and very enjoyable for all age groups. Burdette has incorporated copies of her pupils work throughout the book which not only shows the deep understanding of Macbeth they had but also gives loads of ideas for class lessons.

Although this book is aimed at primary school age children, my daughter referred to it when she was struggling with her standard grade class reading of Macbeth and said that it helped greatly and made the language easier to understand.

This is part of the school curriculum, Year 5 and whilst it tells the story in rhyme, it is easy for children to understand. Hopefully later on it will encourage them to read the Shakespeare version and understand what an original and unique and unsurpassed master story teller he was.

The "Macbeth" for Kids is an inspired way to introduce young children to Shakespeare. I like the way in which some of the original words of Shakespeare have been incorporated into this very readable rhyming couplets version. I would highly recommend this for use in junior schools as an introduction to the Bard.
