The tempest for kids

by Lois Burdett
This is a re-telling of Shapespeare's play in simpler language that children can understand. It is in rhyming couplets and illustrated by the author's grade 2 students.

I read this to my children (aged 8 and almost 12) last week and they enjoyed it very much. They were interested in the story and especially liked the pictures. Since there were many of them and all were drawn by different children, the story characters looked different in all the pictures. My kids thought that was cool.
