Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.
Fairytales help young readers develop critical thinking skills and promote the development of the imagination. As Albert Einstein said, “if you want children to be intelligent read them fairytales”. Fairytales also aid in building emotional resilience in a safe environment (reading with a trusted adult) through exposure and guided conversation. This theme is designed to help develop these skills in a fun and exciting manner.
