Tell your child a good fairy tale

from 1 year 6 months to 3 years

Fairy tales are important for kids; they’re essential stories for childhood.

Fairy Tales Show Kids How to Handle Problems

We learn from the characters in stories, even as adults. They help us because we connect them to our own lives, dreams, anxieties, and consider what we would do in their shoes. Fairy tales help children learn how to navigate life.

Fairy Tales Build Emotional Resiliency

Fairy tales show real life issues in a fantastical scenario where most often the hero triumphs. Children need to discover in a safe environment that bad things happen to everyone. Because guess what? No one in life is immune from challenges — so we need to build capacity in our children. Do we build emotional muscles so our children can hang on during tough times or do we shelter our kids, protecting them, leaving them so weak they can’t handle anything requiring strength?

Fairy Tales Teach a Story

Fairy tales are understanding the basics of story — setting, characters, and plot (rising action, climax, and resolution) as well as the difference between fiction and non-fiction. Once a child understands story, it supports their ability to make predictions and comprehend other stories they're reading.

Reading fairy tales will help you bond with your kid. At night read the quiet good tales, that help to relax and lull your child. Kids' dreams depend on the impressions they get during the day, including cartoons, events and tales. Read fairy tales with pleasure, with the appropriate mood and tone.

Make photo of your little one listening to the fairy tale and upload to the App. What's your kid favourite fairy tale?
