For adults, reading Shakespeare can be a fulfilling experience, but for many young students, it can seem like the academic equivalent of root canal. Two-time Laurence Olivier Award winning playwright Ken Ludwig possesses first-hand experience overcoming possible blocks to appreciating the Bard of Stratford: He devised his methods while teaching his own children. Starting with short passages from plays, he acclimated his offspring to the pleasures of the texts even as he broadened their knowledge of the time period and the play's dramatic dynamics. How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare accomplishes what many parents never thought possible: How to get youngsters to enjoy our literary heritage.
