A Great Introduction to Shakespeare!

My mother introduced the Lamb's versions of Shakespeare's tales to me in written form, when I was in fourth grade. I read them voraciously, and continue to return to their work. This audio version is a great way to familiarize yourself, as well as your kids, with the classic works.
