Frugal Fairytale Tips


Age Appropriate - Do not tell a child a fairy tale before the age of 4.  A fairy tale could scare a younger child. Children enjoy fairy tales from about age 4-7. 

Compassion and Sympathy - Talk about the characters with you children, and help them learn to feel sympathy and compassion for other people and their problems.

Illustrations - Be sure that the pictures in the books you buy are tastefully done, and non-threatening.

Imagination - Discuss fairy tales with children and help stimulate their imagination and creativity.

Learning - Fairy tales teach lessons on life, morals, and values in an entertaining way.  Discuss with your child what they have learned from each fairy tale.  Talk about how they can apply it to their lives.
