Should fairy tales be read to children?
no i don't think fairy tales should be read to children
That quote is attributed to Albert Einstein. The exact quote it: "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."
Yes, I believe so.
of course! they are interesting, and teach good lessons
That depends on which versions you read. Generally fairy tales can be quite interesting if you read a well-written account, or if you can find an original version of some European tales.

Fairy tales are basically short fantasy stories and there is no rule saying that they're just for kids. Although there seems to be more of a tendency for kids to read or have them read to them.
Mexicans read fairy tales like:princess and more things and folk stories are la llorona that means the cry.
because for children, when they are young it is fun for them to get there brains all make-believy stimulated and somes believe in fairy tales and make believe. they get excited about it and like to have stories read to them and stuff. they like magical things, songs, and stories!
Who was the person responsible for changing fairy tales so that they would all end happily ever after and could be read to small children?

Fairy tales are usually archaic, traditional stories passed down through generations, whereas Harry Potter is just a modern, widely-renowned book about wizards and the like. Fairy tales are usually short stories read to small children to keep them amused. Harry Potter is not a short story and the plot would be quite difficult for young children to understand. In fairy tales only the bad character dies but in Harry Potter good people die and some… Read More
No. Fairy tales involve magic and mythical crearures, which are created by the author, who makes a story about them. They are fun to read, but are fiction. hope i helped.
Indeed there are. Many involve the fairy court or saints. You can read more at related links.
Tales teach the main principal: what is the difference between good and evil, good deed deserves its good end etc. they teach to identify the good things to children and of course the bad as well. Not only this but at a young age, children will learn speech skills when you read them books that are easy enough to understand.
Tolkien as a kid has read childrens fairy tales and no hobbits were not in them because in the middle ages creatures in fairy tales were goblins trolls fairies dwarves elves dragons gnomes and ogres
Well there really isn't a reason, they just get people to read them so that they learn a lesson.
Books like Tom Sawyer, Treasure Island, and Robinson Crusoe are traditional literature that were not written for children but have been read by children for many years. Mother Goose rhymes have been around a long time. Fairy tales such as Grimm and Charles Perrault were originally used as cautionary tales or entertainment for adults.
How should you make him understand that this is a real life and your relationship cannot be like the in fairy tales and movies?
Simply tell him. Love isn't like the fairy tales you read in books yet they CAN be quite similar in some ways. Not everything is going to happen in a perfect manner and he has to accept this reality that love isn't as easy and simple like in the movies. If he can't come to terms with this I think it's best if you move on.
Wolves are not like the big bad wolves you have read or heard about in fairy tales! Occasionally they have been heard to attack cattle, but they are nice peaceful animals generally and they need to be protected so they do not become extinct.

What movie is this line from you lost my best friend that day and from then on the only fairy tales in your life were the ones you read about in books?
"A Cinderella Story". It was a 2004 Hilary Duff film. The "best friend" the little girl referred to was her dad. "I lost my best friend that day. From then on, the only fairy tales in my life were the ones I read about in books. Since my father didn't leave a will, my stepmother got everything. The house, the diner, and to her dismay, me."
Jehovah's Witnesses are very concerned about the education of their children (as are other people). We claim to have the 'true religion'. We teach our children 'truth'; not what we consider the lies of other religions. We do not teach them about the religious fairy tales of Christmas & Santa; nor about the Easter bunny. As they grow older, we do not teach them the fairy tales of Evolution. Rather we would critique it with… Read More
If you want to read a really cool fairy tale then read : rainbow magic!
Children should read fiction to stimulate imagination and invoke new thoughts into their brain. Children need fiction to see world in a different view than adults.
Fairy Tales are a form of fictional short story. However, they are set apart because most of them were based on tales passed down through oral tradition (folklore). They usually have some sort of moral (unlike many modern short stories), and have fantastic elements (such as fairies) in them... talking animals, magic, etc. Here is a good article to read for additional information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairy_tale
Folk tales, by definition, are stories that have been transmitted orally over many generations. One of their characteristics is that they are simple. They are simple because they were really meant for children. Since young children can't read, the stories (a) had to be told to them--hence the oral tradition, and (b) they had to be simple. Another characteristic of folk tales--which also arises from their target audience-- is that they usually have a moral… Read More
well...to me children should be able to read what adults can read as long as they are not like in the forth grade maybe in middle school kids should be able to readwhat ever they want. Im twelve and have read all of the *twilight saga* books and loved them! So I agree that kids should be able to read larger books.
It should be "The children are BEGINNING to read nicely, now." ... though a better word than "nicely" would be to say "The children are beginning to read better" or "to read well"
They were oral traditions from Celtic peoples to explain things they didn't understand. The fairies at first were not the nice pretty things we have today, but evil ugly beings that wanted to steal souls (this is how they explained people become unconscious ). Eventually, they evolved into what we have, but they had to go through a lot of changes and have people learn to read. Fairy tales were written when people get drunk… Read More

Most stories were oral poems because people couldn't read and as a poem it helped people to remember. In the late 1800's Grimm brothers took the stories and wrote them down.

Unicorns are entirely fictional and do not exist. Various fairy tales and fables say they have only one horn, can only be ridden by a virgin and can run incredibly quickly. But it depends on which fable you read.
Start with The Silmarillion. This will provide a reference point and a backdrop to any other of Tolkien's works you may read, as well as draw you into the histories of the elves in Beleriand and the tales of the Elder Days. A must read. After this, Unfinished Tales is probably the best one to move onto, as it has stories and information related to 'Rings and the Silmarillion. A slightly abbreviated version of the… Read More

It is not obligatory for Muslim children to learn to read Arabic. however, it is preferred whenever possible for Muslim children to read Arabic to be able to read the Quran in its God revelation Arabic language which is better than reading Quran translations in other languages.
Novel, because of the bright imagination and fantasy theme of fairy tales, it took you just a shorter time, not knowing that you've already got that far. Unless it's a very long fairy tale or a very short novel, I would have to say the novel. The problem is, there is no fixed definition of what constitutes flash fiction, short story, novella or novel. It's broadly accepted that a novel is at least 40,000 words… Read More
You should always read books because it is very helpful when you are older. Sometimes you can learn new words and interesting facts when you do read. There are people in my class who don't read books and they do not do as well in English class than they should be doing.

An autobiography is the story of a person's life, written by the person who lived the events and experiences. It contains a mixture of facts, written as memories, and reflections of a personal nature. A fairy tale is a fictional account of a person, animal, or supernatural 'character', narrowly focuses on one aspect of a story (such as Red Riding Hood going to see her grandmother), and a moral or lesson. A fairy tale is… Read More
You should read any and as many children's books as you can. Read Grimm's Fairy Tales, or classics such as Treasure Island. You can start from Eric Carle's The Very Hungary Caterpillar to Clifford the Big Red Dog and move up to Frog and Toad, then Bunnicula, to the Harry Potter books.
Many traditional tales have a similar pattern that can be recognized when being read. Many of these tales are about love and happy endings.
You should start reading to your child from birth. Children love the quality time spent while reading stories. Research shows that children who are read to at an early age will learn to read much sooner.
Fairy tales have been around as long as man has had the ability to put pen to paper. 'Fairy tale' is a very broad term that can be used to describe lots of stories. For example, Cinderella is a fairy tale, but depending upon the mind of the reader, so is the Holy Bible. All fictional stories ever created were written by dreamers, by people that had or have normal lives, but like to think… Read More
