Ahh, fairy tales. The tried and true stories of our youth, and the youth before us, and the youth before that. Usually, very little changes with fairy tales . . . until it does. Over the past few years, new life has been breathed into these time-tested stories that we all know.
Adults have enjoyed a new take on an old familiar classic from TV shows like Once Upon a Time and novels like Cinder and Wicked. Now we have a wide variety of alternative fairy tales for kids.
Over the past decade or so, more children’s books have joined the alternative fairy tale party. I am excited by this, and frankly, we couldn’t be happier. These stories are creative, fun, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny.
So get ready for something new yet familiar at the same time. These books are sure to delight both you and your children.
