ThreeBlessings Posted March 17, 2012 Share Posted March 17, 2012 I'd like to hear opinions on reading fairy tales to younger kids, ages 4-6. Do you read only sanitized versions, only original or unsanitized versions, or both to kids this age and why? Does it depend on the child? My youngest is 4 and I've started reading The Red Fairy Book and The Blue Fairy Book and some others to her. She absolutely adores fairy tales, so I thought I'd start reading these to her. She seems fine with the stories, not bothered or disturbed. I hadn't read all of these to the bigger kids when they were younger though and I hadn't read all of them myself either. I'd read so many sanitized versions of the three little pigs that I was a bit surprised when the wolf got boiled alive. Dd didn't seem bothered by it, but I was wanting to hear others' opinions on the matter. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
