The World of Shakespeare at Your Fingertips!
All the world’s a stage-and with this extraordinary book-plus kit, you can dramatize the most memorable scenes in all of theatre. Contents include:
•Sixty fingerpuppet cards featuring Shakespeare’s most famous characters, including Hamlet, Lady Macbeth, King Lear, Othello, Shylock, and Falstaff
•Twelve stand-up sets of castles, forests, balconies, and battle fields
•A 96-page “folio” of classic scenes-from Hamlet’s “To Be or Not to Be” soliloquy to Romeo and Juliet’s classic balcony serenade
Once you’ve finished staging the Bard’s entire canon, you can mix and match masterpuppets to produce your own Shakespearean mash-ups. Perhaps your Romeo will fall in love with Lady Macbeth!

I love the idea of this set. As far as teaching, or learning Shakespeare, performing it is really how to best understand it. So for teaching Shakespeare, it's excellent.
Also, the verbiage is authentic Shakespeare,which often times is not the case in sets or books to teach children. To me Shakespeare is Shakespeare and to change it makes it not Shakespeare.
The finger puppets are awesome & include all the characters you associate with Shakespeare. The graphics are wonderful and it's cool to see these characters come to life.
The only part of this set that I'm not thrilled with, is that the stories are a little too condensed for me. The plays are not complete. But it's not a huge deal, if we want to act out all of the scenes, I can provide what's missing from a book, or online source.
Over all I think this is a fun set & great learning tool. Yes Shakespeare can be fun!
