shakespeare vs. iron maiden

Happy Birthday William Shakespeare!

Yup, today is the Bard’s birthday. This may be exciting only to me. I love Shakespeare. I really do. But I also get that not everyone shares this same appreciation. That said, whether you read Shakespeare or not, his presence is still all around us.

Today, on CBC Radio, they played a fun game called Shakespeare vs. Iron Maiden where they read excerpts from both Shakespeare and Iron Maiden and you had to guess which was which. It was really hard. I totally lost. It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed either.  So to refresh my Shakespeare, and to hopefully pass on an appreciation for classic literature to Boo, I’m thinking the following children’s books are in order.

Super-cool counting board books for babies by Alison Oliver. Looooove.
