King Henry V

by William Shakespeare

Henry V is a history play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written near 1599. It tells the story of King Henry V of England, focusing on events immediately before and after the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years’ War. In the First Quarto text, it was titled The Cronicle History of Henry the fift,[1]:p.6 which became The Life of Henry the Fifth in the First Folio text.
The play is the final part of a tetralogy, preceded by Richard II, Henry IV, Part 1, and Henry IV, Part 2. The original audiences would thus have already been familiar with the title character, who was depicted in the Henry IV plays as a wild, undisciplined young man. In Henry V, the young prince has matured. He embarks on an expedition to France and, his army badly outnumbered, defeats the French at Agincourt.



The Ben10 Drawing Book for Kids: Learn How to Draw Characters from Ben10 with the Easy and Fun Step-by-Step Guide

by Raphael Marino

Children do not become artists overnight. There are a number of different things which help them improve their drawing skills. Without practice, they will not improve. Without dedication, their technique will not develop. And without a simple, step-by-step guide like this one, which is designed to make drawing fun, they will not be passionate.

One important thing to remember is that no child will create perfect sketches. When we are younger, it is in our nature to be messy and to experiment as we learn. This means that as a parent or guardian, teaching your children to draw requires a lot of patience.

It is likely that your children will want to produce quality drawings straight away and may become frustrated when they cannot do this as well as you can. This is why having a guide such as this one is so important. It teaches kids that learning to draw does not happen at once – much like drawing itself, it is a gradual build up to a final result.

Therefore, the instructions in this book will not only teach children important skills and techniques – it will allow them to have fun whilst they learn, so much so that they will improve without really noticing that they are practicing!
