I’ve always been a fairytale fan. It all started in second grade when we got a reading book called I Know a Story, then It Happened One Day and finally After the Sun Sets. I think I finished the last one in third grade. They had fairy tales I didn’t know about like the princess on the icy hill and Snow White and Rose Red. I remember the books especially well because when I taught second grade, they still had the them so I read them with my students.
I love the watered down versions of fairy tales like Cinderella and The Little Mermaid that Disney produced and I love the originals, even Hans Christian Andersen who was really depressing.So I have some suggestions of classics that I think are well done. I won’t give a synopsis today since they are all familiar ones. Take your pick and enjoy!
The Three Little Pigs by Paul Galdone
Note: Read by a cast of famous actors organized by Steven Spielberg included in book!
So, as you can see, I do “know a story”! And until next week, keep on reading!
