Read in January, 2011

fiona LOVES this book - granted, we only read the full thing once. most of the time we use the pictures to tell the story (oh, and the fact that tim and i are both english teachers and are well versed in this particular play). i have to say, i really like it. fi loves to point out the various characters ("tybalt is ANGRY!" "juliet's mommy is bad!" "peter is silly!") and i can usually get her to fall asleep by act three. we do modify a bit - eternal timeout instead of dying and going to hell, for example - but, hey, fi is only 2. what do you want from me?
