Sharing fairytales on a specific day is an interesting concept. I found though that when my daughter was little, we read fairy tales sporadically depending on her mood. And there are some great books out there, both with pictures and without, some classic collections and some more recent, or stand alone stories of all sorts.
One of our favorites wasTam Lin by Jane Yolen. If you're not familiar with the story, this is the brief synopsis from Goodreads.com: A young girl triumphs over the Queen of Faeries to reclaim her ancestral home and free her true love in this haunting retelling of an old Scottish ballad. What it doesn't mention is that in the process, the girl must hold onto her love no matter what he changes into. This and the lovely illustrations by Charles Mikolaycak enthralled her.
Another picture book that grabbed her attention was Marianna Mayer's version of The Twelve Dancing Princesses illustrated by K.Y. Craft. The pictures are rich with details of the different parts of the story.
These are just a handful of the wonderful picture books that are out there to be shared. I will talk about fairy tales in other formats another time. Do you have a favorite? Please share it in the comments. Happy Reading!
