My kids (and I) love this series, and they are always begging to read the next book every time we finish a book. For us, This story was particularly engaging. I expected it to be a little dull, but Ms. Osborne really brings Shakespeare alive in this tale. Because of this story, my children have a knowledge of who Shakespeare is, and they are much more interested in his works now. The story follows the same format as the other books in the series, and provides a broad overview of how theater might have worked during the renaissance period. My daughter, particularly, was fascinated to learn that women were not on the stage, and what followed was pure shock on my son's part that men and boys had to play the female roles. I recommend this book as a starting point to further discussions on theater and Shakespeare's plays.
This series is a great starter series of chapter books for kindergarten/first graders! In this book, the readers are introduced to Shakespeare in a fun and simple way that exposes them to it without it being really about Shakespeare. All the books in this series build a wonderful foundation for any child on myriad subjects that they will be exposed to throughout their schooling but through a fantasy story line that arcs through all the books. The two main characters, a brother and sister, travel to different places and times to explore the world. So fun!
This is the best way to spend a vacation. I love magic tree house books. They are the best books in the world. I read all of them but I didn't read them in order. So now I am. Reading them in order makes it so. Much easier than reading them out of order, u can keep up with Jake and Annie and there feelings it is soooooooooooo much fun with Jake and Annie.
