How Shakespeare Is Presented To Children
This study examines children's books about Shakespeare, his time and his characters in the light of changing ideas about childhood as well as changes in the experiences of the children who read the various versions of Shakespeare available to them in adaptations, fiction and non-fiction.
When Laura Page returns to the remote Holderness village of Welwick, it is to try and discover the mystery of her mother Susannah's early life. Now a prosperous businesswoman in Hull, Susannah never speaks of her childhood. When she was brought up with the terrible stigma of bastardy - of being nobody's child.
Susannah's own mother, Mary-Ellen, born into poverty and living in a labourer's cottage, had the misfortune to fall in love with a local landowner's son. She was his one and only great love, but was unable to acknowledge their child and had to watch her growing up in hardship.
As the years passed and Laura began to be curious about her mother's past, so too did she become aware of the mystery about her own father.

- Better engage and partner with children, adolescents and families, in meaningful ways;
- Support those who have experienced trauma and loss, and to prevent and eliminate the use of restraint and seclusion;
- Respect and include cultural indices in practices;
- Train, mentor, supervise, support and empower staff about how to deliver promising and best practices, and evidence-informed and evidence-based interventions; and
- Track long-term outcomes, and create funding strategies to better support sustained positive outcomes.
