Fairy Tales Stories.
These fairy tale stories from days gone by, are great reading if you have a young bookworm in your household. I read many books as a child, and to this day these tales still live in my memories.
Brothers Grimm tales were one of my best read stories, many or them over and over again.Not all these fairy tales are the Brothers Grimm's, but still, a nice collection for children to read.
The collection of German fairy tales was first published in 1812 by the Grimm brothers, Jacob and Wilhelm. The collection is commonly known in English as Grimm's Fairy Tales.
Snow White" is a German fairy tale known in many countries in Europe. The best known is a German version collected by the Brothers Grimm in 1812

Noah's Ark & The Biblical Flood
Are These Mythical Stories Also Factual?
Nearly 200 ancient cultures with the capability to keep a written or oral history have records of an all-encompassing flood -- one with astonishing parallels to the biblical account of Noah's Ark. Was there a deluge of such enormous proportion that it covered the entire earth? Has modern technology finally answered these questions?
Some scientists now believe the biblical record of a worldwide flood can account for all the world's geographic anomalies -- geologic abnormalities that, until now, have defied explanation. Astonishing new theories explain the flood that may have inundated the world in ancient times.

Jack and the Beanstalk
Jack and the Beanstalk is an English folktale. The tale is closely associated with the tale of Jack the Giant-killer, and is known under a number of versions.
The earliest known appearance in print is Benjamin Tabart's moralised version of 1807.
Joseph Jacobs rewrote it in English Fairy Tales (1890). Jacobs' version is most commonly reprinted today and it is believed to be closer to the oral versions than Tabart's because it lacks the moralising.

Do you think these books are too cruel for children to read?
While searching there is a lot of negative comments on the internet about these fairy tales, of more than a century ago, which I read, they made no difference to my outlook in life, actually I used to sit for hours staring at those beautiful picture, thinking about what was written in the stories.
