  1. Sounds like fun times! I was thinking of picking up one of the Shakespeare comic books from Timberdoodle when we get to that time period.

    I love your explanation for everything in your video. Especially about Shakespeare showing consequences. I never really thought about it that way. Wish a teacher had pointed that out. Might need to reread some of the works, again.

      One of the best things about Shakespeare is how the characters have to live out the consequences of their actions. When we homeschool our kids, we have a chance to see these things better than we did when we were in school.
