3 reviews for Shakespeare for Children

  1. Hi there, just a comment… It would be fantastic if you could change the sample to a small piece of the play instead of the introduction. It would give listeners a better idea of what they are buying.

    • Thanks! We’ll see what we can do about that.

  2. is there a way to hear a sample of the reading? the sample given is an introduction.

    • Thanks for the suggestion! We have now changed the sample. If you listen to it now, it’s a small portion from Jim Weiss’s retelling of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”

  3. how long are the stories in this audio book?

    • “A midsummer night’s dream” is about 32 minutes, and “the taming of the shrew” is about 31 minutes.
