Don't forget the folk tales!

When choosing picture books, remember that we have a great selection of folk and fairy tales located in the nonfiction section, at J Non Fiction 398.2. The collection offers many beautiful picture books for kids pre-school aged all the way up through middle school.

If you love Cinderella, check out different Cinderella stories from all around the world! If you like animal stories, there are so many folk tales in which animals talk, trick, or have their nature explained! If you like funny stories, we have many 'fractured' fairy tales - traditional tales turned on their heads - like a version of Little Red Riding Hood in which Red wears a red-hooded sweatshirt and rides her bike across the prairie (granny is a tractor-riding, tough-talkin' lady). In these fairy and folk tales there is plenty of adventure, love, magic, friendship, and more.

We have a booklist of good folk and fairy tales to read aloud, and also be sure to ask a staff member if you need any help in selection!
