When a Fairy Tale is Not Enough

Impressively insightful re-blog today………

A Teacher's Reflections

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales.  If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales. -Albert Einstein-


Fairy Tales are the root of storytelling.  They are also the most popular children’s books. No surprise at all!  I have been reading fairy tales for decades, and telling them, too.  Children can’t get enough, and I know why.

Fairy Tales give children the biggest and most important lessons in life; good vs evil, right vs wrong.  Every child wants to be a princess or a king or a dragon.  These timeless tales let children figure out ‘life’.  Yes, life.

There are bad guys and scary creatures in fairy tales.  Terrible things happen.  There are good guys; hens, bears, billy goats, boys, girls.  Good things happen.  That’s how children learn.  Well, that’s how they learn about the most important things in life.  Really.
