Fairy Tales Are More Than True

1 Apr

 

Hello! I’m participating this week in Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday I know she’s gone off on a magical journey (vacation) and will be back next week. Be sure to check out her blog, Silver Threading for fun and creative posts.

The quote I chose today is another of my favorites. I find it very inspiring. I’ve used this quote before or after The Basement book readings in schools and the kids love it too.

 

 

Fairytales are true

 

“Fairy Tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

~G.K. Chesterton

Gilbert Keith Chesterton is considered by some to be the best writer and thinker of the 20th century. He’s best known for his Father Brown (Priest/Detective) stories.

Do you read fairytales to your children? Even Albert Einstein had recommended that parents read fairytales to their children. What do you think about that?

    Perfect. My children had many fairy tales read to them when they were young, and I’m still partial to them myself. 🙂

    Hi Vashti, My Mom read fairytales to us, I read them to my children and now I read them to my grandchildren. And I’ve always made sure there are plenty of books to read.
