My kids reminded me that today marks the 391st anniversary of William Shakespeare's demise this morning.
I could not be prouder.
They learned this fact during our recent vacation in England and France. They remember this fact because of the excellent kid oriented history books produced by Scholastic, "Horrible Histories" and "Dead Famous".
My twins are currently studying American colonial history so these books are providing some interesting alternate perspectives and expanding their knowledge of the events and personalities involved.
