Sharing Classic Childrens' Stories #ChildrenStoryBook

Some of children's most cherished times at school are those times spent outside of the classroom. At recess time, children enjoy everything from playing athletic games like cops and robbers or tag, to beading bracelets and drawing pictures with their friends in the shade.

Reading books is another activity enjoyed by children. What can be even more enjoyable than reading books is having them read to us, by a teacher or librarian. The stories that are written for children are amongst the best in the world. We all remember our favorite children's stories, and moreover, probably reference them all the time. The morals taught in children's books stay with us throughout our lives.

Some of the most famous children's stories in the English speaking world include:

1. Little Red Riding Hood:

Moral: Don't trust strangers- or they might eat you!

2.The Three Little Pigs:

Moral: Even if you fail the first time, keep trying. A story of resourcefulness and cooperation when faced with danger.

3. Pinocchio:

Moral: Don't tell lies.

4. Jack and the Beanstalk:

Moral: There's always a catch. Usually when things seem too good to be true, they usually are.

5. Cinderella:

Moral: Be kind to your family.

6. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs:

Moral: Be kind and good things will come your way.

7. The Hare and the Tortoise:

Moral: Slow and steady wins the race. And, be humble.

8. The Ant and the Grasshopper:

A story about saving money. Moral: Save now and prepare for the future.

9. The Ugly Duckling:

A story about the importance of loving yourself, and finding your place in this world.

Moral: Appreciate inner beauty and talents rather then focus purely on physical appearance.

10. The Boy Who Cried Wolf:

Moral: Always tell the truth because peoples' patience and trust will eventually wear thin.

Taking time out from a busy school day to share these stories with your young students is a wonderful way to teach them important lessons, while giving them the pleasure of enjoying a nice story and some time spent outdoors.

Taking a little trip to a grassy meadow where you and your students can park yourselves under a sheltering tree might be one way to enjoy these stories, sitting under a protective playground shelter might be another. Regardless of where you choose to share these iconic stories, children will always remember them. In fact, they'll probably share them with their own children one day.
