My daughter's absolute favorite!

What made the experience of listening to Tales from Shakespeare the most enjoyable?

My seven year old adores the stories - and she definitely has a pretty good knowledge about the content of several Shakespeare plays now!

What did you like best about this story?

I love that my daughter begged for more!

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

My daughter loves the inflection - the tones and voices used by the narrator.

Marvellous reading

Could be helped by labelling the chapters with the titles of the plays instead of numbers 1-8, to navigate to King Lear or the Tempest or whatever. This comment of course holds true for all Audible chapters - hopeless lack of adequate detail.
