This is kind of weird, I know, but I love Costco's soft-cover classics, and I stumbled on these yesterday. Altogether, that makes 221 Grimm fairytales. They are strange, they are weird, but they are truly awesome. I look at fairytales as similar to classical music for kids. They are simply good for the brain. They are part of the collective unconscious for our society and they help kids make connections they wouldn't otherwise make.
Fairytales are important. Truly. And they are short. Easy reads before bed. Plus these versions (available at Costco for nine dollars) are leather bound and gorgeous. Worth every penny!
