Dickens and Shakespeare!

Dickens and Shakespeare are such famous Englishmen that I knew we had to somehow cover them in our ‘England week’. But with a 4yo and an 18mo, I wasn’t sure how to do that. I came across these books from Usborne, and actually they have been perfect. They are definitely not suitable for my 18mo. However my 4yo absolutely loves them. Particularly the Dickens – he is really into Oliver Twist and Great Expectations. They are very well written, easy to understand and follow and very engaging, whilst keeping the essence of the stories. A great introduction to these two great men!

Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
