Children's Stories

What kind of stories do my kids like?

Tania (now 6) has always preferred stories with a happy ending. So, some of the more classic stories she has favoured over the years are: Rapunzel, Rumplestiltskin, Thumbelina, Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Princess Mouse, and Babba Yaga. I remember the first tiem I read her The Princess Mouse, you could she how delighted she was with the twist at the end.

Jason (now 3-1/2) favours stories where some bad guy gets his comeuppance. So some of the more classical stories he has favoured are: The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Puss in Boots. Jason often makes me change the lead character in stories to be him.

Of course, we read many other stories to them, but those are the so called classical fairy tales. Rhyming stories are popular - they like The Cat in the Hat.
