This book is a good addition for anyone who is studying Shakespeare! However, if you have younger children, this book tends to be too in depth for their understanding. While I know that it is considered for 2nd - 12th grades, it is our experience that younger children seem to become easily bored with the plays and sonnets, and tend to say, "I don't know what you just read mom!" So, personally, we feel that maybe from 5th grade on up would be a more appropriate age range unless Shakespeare is something that your children have grown up hearing already.
