Shakespeare for Kids makes the works of Shakespeare accessible to a younger audience, through abridged, fast-paced story-telling in plain English with a host of character voices to bring life to the audio production. 

This collection combines the Shakespeare classics of As You Like It, Shakespeare's classic pastoral comedy with hidden identities and, Hamlet, the epic Shakespearean tragedy of palace intrigue. Both are told in an age-appropriate manner that preserves the story, but makes it accessible and free from adult themes. This is an ideal way to introduce children to the incredible power of Shakespeare storytelling, without getting lost in the complexity of Shakespeare's language, which is, at times challenging for a younger audience. Hence these plays are abridged and told in clear, plain English. 

A variety of voice actors bring life to the characters in both stories, making this more than just standard narration and bringing the plays to life for the young listener. Part of the Shakespeare for Kids audiobook series, this title also includes a brief introduction to both plays.
