Susan of The Book Chook has started a little series of fairy tales. She started it off with Introducing Kids to Fairy Tales Online (1), highlighting fairy tales on YouTube and activities that can be used to follow-up the videos. Last week, she posted again with Fairy Tales Online and a Fairy Tale Party. This time, she shares a multitude of fairy tale links, including sites with stories, printables, and more. Susan even goes so far to share some fun ideas for throwing a fairy tale party!
Speaking of printables, I also discovered through Brimful Curiosities, Scholastic Mini-Books - Free Printables. A multitude of printables were highlighted, including a whole list of favorite fairy tales for children!
If you are looking for a site that has some of the classic tales, you need to check out one of my favorite sites, SurLaLune Fairy Tales. Not only do I refer to this site for some classics, but you may also find a few versions with a modern spin as well!
Last, but not least, let's visit Jen Robinson's Book Page and her post, Three Very Different Fairy Tale/Fable Retellings: A Booklights Reissue. Jen shares some recommendations for some recent re-tellings of old favorites. I know that I have added them to my list!
Do you know of some great sites or articles dealing with fairy tales?
