Hi friends! I’m so glad to see you today at Storytime with Miss Theresa. We’re reading Reading Beauty written by Deborah Underwood and illustrated by Meg Hunt. It’s a fractured fairy tale. This means it’s an original tale changed up a little to make a new story.
Fairy tales play an important part in child development. They teach critical thinking and decision making skills. Fairy tales also teach about story structure. There is a clear beginning, middle and end to every story. This helps with reading comprehension. Fractured fairy tales are restructured traditional tales. Spark your child’s imagination by asking them to think about a different ending or another character’s point of view!
