Grandma’s Fairy Tale Museum is a delightful book of poems that takes the reader through different rooms of artifacts throughout the “museum” from favorite fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, The Ugly Duckling, Frog Princess, The Three Pigs, Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperor´s New Clothes, The Princess and the Pea, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Bears. These stories will be lost to twenty first century children if parents and grandparents don’t continue to read them. The idea for the book came about after teaching a group of 2nd and 4th graders in Evanston, Illinois, a unit on fairy tales. As a culminating activity, the children were asked to find an object at home that they could pretend was something used in a fairy tale which they placed in the classroom museum. The museum grew at an amazingly rapid pace. The activity was a success and it became apparent how much the children enjoyed the new spin on the use of fairytales. This book is designed to enhance children’s interest in reading fairy tales and encourage mothers and grandmothers to read more to their children.
Many of the pages have an optional “Paint Me” feature for children to finger paint the pages and create their own custom version of the book.
Additional features: Professional voice over, table of contents control to navigate easily through the book and an audio on/off control.
