We have not only compiled a checklist with the most important criteria for fairy tale books for children, but also many product recommendations for you.
- Because fairy tales vary widely in their content, it is important to make sure that the age recommendation is appropriate. Fairy tale collections specifically for children usually do not contain fairy tales whose content would be too cruel or disturbing for children.
- In addition, the selection should be appropriate to the child’s developmental stage.
- The younger the child, the more likely he or she is to use illustrations included in the book to help visualize the story as it is read aloud. Beautiful pictures of characters and landscapes further stimulate the child’s imagination and thus increase the entertainment value.
- Especially with the first fairy tale books, you should make sure that the stories are short and have a happy ending. This way, the positive ending is told on the same evening and the child can learn about it before he or she sleeps.
- In addition, short stories with lots of illustrations are a good introduction, easy to understand and usually contain simple but important messages for young children.

FAQ Fairy Tale Book
You can start reading fairy tales to your child from the age of 3. From this age, children can follow a story attentively and are interested in stories about magic because of their stage of development.
Fairy tales have been created over centuries in all peoples and bundle in themselves the accumulated experiences of mankind. They translate life situations into symbols and images that children understand intuitively. Fairy tales also offer heroes with whom children can identify and convey traditional values. The often antiquated language of fairy tales stimulates a child’s imagination and expands his or her vocabulary.
Fairy tales can be chosen to address the child’s fears and problems or to build on his or her strengths. For example, if the child has connection problems, fairy tales about courage, friendship, and community can help. If the child is very emphatic, this ability can be strengthened by fairy tales about kindness and helpfulness.
In 1812, the two brothers published their first books together. The first volume of the series “Kinder- und Hausmärchen” was then published at Christmas time.
Typically, fairy tales begin with “Once upon a time…” or “Once upon a time, long ago, there lived…”. Also known is the final sentence, which is usually “and if they didn’t die, they are still alive today”.
A fairy tale is usually set in an imaginary world where nothing seems impossible. Thus, there are supernatural beings, such as witches, dragons, wizards, dwarfs, and talking animals. Often rhymes, poems and songs are incorporated into the story. Good and evil are strictly separated and the main character must resist evil. The main character rarely has a name compared to the secondary characters. Even if she is close to failure in the course of the story, she always succeeds in the end. Thus, a fairy tale usually ends with a “moral of the story.”
