At Kidadl we pride ourselves on offering families original ideas to make the most of time spent together at home or out and about, wherever you are in the world. We strive to recommend the very best things that are suggested by our community and are things we would do ourselves - our aim is to be the trusted friend to parents.
We try our very best, but cannot guarantee perfection. We will always aim to give you accurate information at the date of publication - however, information does change, so it’s important you do your own research, double-check and make the decision that is right for your family.
Kidadl provides inspiration to entertain and educate your children. We recognise that not all activities and ideas are appropriate and suitable for all children and families or in all circumstances. Our recommended activities are based on age but these are a guide. We recommend that these ideas are used as inspiration, that ideas are undertaken with appropriate adult supervision, and that each adult uses their own discretion and knowledge of their children to consider the safety and suitability.
Kidadl cannot accept liability for the execution of these ideas, and parental supervision is advised at all times, as safety is paramount. Anyone using the information provided by Kidadl does so at their own risk and we can not accept liability if things go wrong.

He is best known for his 'Essays Of Elia' and 'Tales From Shakespeare', children's books he co-authored with his sister Mary Lamb.

His annual income is undisclosed.
No information is available about his height.
On December 27, 1834, he died at 59 from erysipelas caused by a fall on the street.
Mrs. Reynolds mentored him in his early life. When he was seven, he joined Christ's Hospital boarding school.
On February 10, 1775, he was born in London as the youngest of three children to John Lamb and Elizabeth Field. John Lamb worked as a lawyer's clerk.
At the age of 44, he fell in love with actress Fanny Kelly, but Fanny Kelly turned down his marriage proposal.
Charles had a stuttering problem due to his family life, which hindered him from pursuing a clerical career. Charles Lamb and his sister had a bustling social life, mixing with some of the most renowned literary figures, William Wordsworth being one of them.
Lamb's first literary work was published in 1796 in the first volume of Coleridge's 'Poems On Various Subjects'. In 1802, the writer published a poetic tragedy, 'John Woodvil'. 'John Woodvil' was poorly received.
'Tales from Shakespeare', which he co-wrote with his sister Mary Lamb, was one of his most famous and noteworthy works. It's a children's recreation of tragedies and comedies of Shakespeare. In 1808, Charles Lamb published 'The Adventures Of Ulysses', a children's rendition of 'Odyssey'. In 1823, Charles Lamb released 'Essays Of Elia', a collection of essays that contains an autobiographical description of the experiences of his hypothetical character, Elia.
