The Young Reader's Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night's Dream e-book

by Antonio Javier Caparo,Adam McKeown


I just finished reading A Midsummer Night's Dream by Adam McKeown aloud to my 7 and 8 year old .

I just finished reading A Midsummer Night's Dream by Adam McKeown aloud to my 7 and 8 year old children, homeschooled 2nd and 3rd graders, a girl and a boy. I really didn't know how it would go as this is our first attempt at any of Shakespeare's works, but this particular play was recommended via a Charlotte Mason resource as being appropriate for ages 7+ (and I knew all the ones I remembered from high school were not so appropriate!).

Perfect for pre-teens. I only wished this company had all of Shakespears plays.

I love this book. The illustrations are really good and interesting. A great way to introduce children to Shakespeare stories.

I just finished reading A Midsummer Night's Dream by Adam McKeown aloud to my 7 and 8 year old children, homeschooled 2nd and 3rd graders, a girl and a boy. I really didn't know how it would go as this is our first attempt at any of Shakespeare's works, but this particular play was recommended via a Charlotte Mason resource as being appropriate for ages 7+ (and I knew all the ones I remembered from high school were not so appropriate!). When I found this "Young Reader's Shakespeare" version of the play at our library, I decided I'd start with this book, and then afterwards, we'd read or listen to the audiobook of the full play. I gave my children a little background information about the play by reading the inside cover and the back cover, to which my son, the oldest of the two, groaned and rolled his eyes a good bit about having to listen to a love story. But after chapter one, when I asked if I should keep reading, he looked away and muttered, "Go on..." By the end of chapter two, he was trying to hide his laughter. There were many parts throughout the book where all three of us were giggling! Needless to say, we finished it by the 2nd day, and it was well enjoyed by all. The photos are beautiful: bright, colorful, and add much to the story. There are 73 pages of the play, followed by 2 pages of questions with answers, and a character listing, both of which we went over before we actually started reading; the character listing was quite helpful for reviewing in the beginning as we were learning the characters. My children are used to listening to read alouds daily, and we read the entire book in three sittings over the course of 2 days. I think this was a perfect introduction to Shakespeare for them!!! I am excited now to read or listen to the play in its entirety since we know the basic storyline and won't get as lost in the wording/language. My only criticism of the book is a few errors in the text towards the end, which better editing would have prevented...nothing major, but I did have to reread a few lines a time or two to figure out what it should have said. Will definitely be looking for more of Shakespeare's works retold by Adam McKeown in the future!!

I bought this for my eleven year old daughter who starts Senior School in September as I saw it on next years curriculum. She doesn't read as much as I did at her age and although she sailed through her English SATS this year, I was concerned she may find the challenge of Shakespeare wouldn't hold her interest. To our surprise she read this version whilst away at Grandparents for two days and seemed to both enjoy it and be able to talk fluently about the story and characters. The book is beautifully illustrated (she explained every picture to us) and isn't too dumbed-down which I was concerned about having read some seven year olds had been bought it. Will be happily buying the other Shakespeare books by Adam McKeown incase she wants to dip into those too. Highly recommended - only wish I had owned these books at her age!

I just finished reading this to my three boys ages 7, 9 and 11, and they LOVED it. 7YO's review: "That was very short, and VERY funny!" Knocked off 1 star for some poor editing towards the end of the book, but otherwise, we all loved this adaptation. Well done!

This book gives a readability to the play, especially for any child going to the theater to see it done live. The illustrations are very good, and the humor comes through. Fourth grade is not too young to understand this book independently; even younger children can listen to you reading it and enjoy it. This book includes the cast of characters and also some context for some of the terms used in the story: "rude mechanicals" and "Helen of Troy" and "antic fables and Fairy toys."
