10 Shakespeare Books for Kids That They’ll Love

Like What You See? Tell Your Friends!

We have been reading Shakespeare in our home since my son was 8. So I wanted to share with you his favorite Shakespeare books for kids so you can also encourage your kids to read the great works of the Bard.

He loves reading both the original plays and the adaptations, but his favorites are the adaptations. But he absolutely loves Shakespeare, we have seen over 5 theater productions too.

On a recent trip to Atlanta, he found a Shakespeare tavern and we went to see the Merchant of Venice (if you are ever there, I highly recommend it.) On another visit, this time to the UK, we went to Stratford Upon Avon to see Henry VI: Rebellion and the list goes on.

All of these Shakespeare books he has read and is begging for more. In fact, we have just purchased the No Fear Merchant of Venice book after he enjoyed the play so much at the weekend.
