In the land of make believe anything can happen! Fairy Tales do make us believe just that. It also makes children use their imagination. Fairy Tales take us to many places that we wouldn't be able to visit just for fun! Kids love magical-mystical happenings. Some children will be able to make connections in their own lives with that of the fairy tale. Remember the mean step-mother in Cinderella! In this day and age most step-mothers are warm, kind and loving. What would occur in the story if Cindy's mother wasn't so self-centered and mean? Sounds like a beginning of a new story for the children to write!

Well over one hundred fairy tales are available, including both traditional stories and tales you might not recognize as easily.
