"Any school with an interest in drama will find this book a useful and refreshing addition to the school library. Recommended." - Library Media Connection
"...Cox's effort is sure to be a welcome guide to bringing Shakespeare to the elementary stage." - School Library Journal
"In this guide for teachers, librarians, and recreational leaders, Cox (teacher education, California State University) proves that students can understand the language and ideas in Shakespeare's plays and perform them well enough to interest an audience. She offers a rationale for teaching language arts and reading by performing Shakespeare, based on national standards and recent reading research, and explains how to use the approach with all students, including English language learners and students with disabilities. She recommends and summarizes ten plays, and provides a ready-to-use, condensed script of Macbeth for grades 3-8." - Reference & Research Book News
