Welcome to the Palo Alto Parent Blog. Here I share whatever I find interesting that stretches the minds of my elementary school aged kids. Everything reviewed here I have purchased and used myself.
Read on, and let me know what you think!

The Shakespeare For Kids Series the great. My kids love the pictures drawn by 7-8 year olds on every page, as well as the letters written by the children. They also include the famous quotes. 

We went through Hamlet, I thought the kids might be scared, but they were actually OK (ages 6, 8). 

At some point, I would like to take them to The Shakespeare Festival in Oregon Ashland with the Elizabethan Stage.
