The Merchant of Venice

The reaction of my girls after me reading this to them was not what I think they were supposed to get out of it.

They mostly had comments about how weird it was.

Methinks Shakespeare may need a titch more preparation. Or different choices.



  1. We haven't gotten to the Merchant yet here, but the kids love Midsummer Night's Dream and Taming of the Shrew best.

    What do you use? We like Jim Weiss reading both of the above and also the adaptations done by Nesbit.

    Happy Shakespearing!

  2. We're using the Child's Shakespeare availabe on

    I hope that they like Midsummer Night's Dream better!
