Story Resources

I thought with all the talk of fairy tells I would list a few resources for stories I have used or are using.  Also to add my two cents to a topic that was well debated on both sides the first grade curriculum says fairy tales form around the world not just Grimm’s. Sometimes another story would work better and that is the point we are trying to reach. So here are some sites with wonderful stories. I have mentioned www.mainlesson.com , http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Children%27s_Literature_%28Bookshelf%29,   http://www.childrensbooksonline.org/library.htm

I also love this book Best Known and Best Loved Tales from Around the World A Child’s Book of Stories Illustrated by Jessie Wilcox Smith. Found it at goodwill for $1.00 it’s 500 pages of all the unabridged stories and fables you really need.
