Love this quote by Einstein ..

“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairytales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales.”


10 Reasons Why Kids Need to Read Non-Disney Fairy tales.




I wrote a Fairy Tale ... maybe I'll put it here ...

And Aesop's fables? There are probably several such stories.

My concern (and implied question) - I have no idea if what is offered in grade school today provides much support to realize there are causes and effects in daily life.


PS - I'm not sure about offering pre-Victorian fairy tales to children . . .

Most fairy tales were not written for children. They serve another meme altogether. The "for children" part was just the way to get away with it.

Consider the work of the Rev. Charles Dodgson. Not really for kiddies at all, though his books supposedly came out of a line of stories originally told to his friends' children.

Something like the entire "Wizard of Oz" series?
(still "cleaner" than pre-victorian's version of Snow White)

Currently, I am working on my children's book to convince children to brush teeth. But I feel that the animated script has more prospect. Is this considered fairy tales? Because my target audiences are parents and children.

That's not a fairy tale.

consider creating an adventure that teaches the same point or benefit a kid might get for brushing their teeth but in a different arena.

I wonder if this will work for adults.

I think I will go home and read a book.

Start with The Cat In The Hat. There is a lot of good advice there... for kids and old dudes!
