BOOKS FOR READING
Folk literature should be an important part of any child’s reading. These stories introduce children to the human experience. Stories common for us all. Stories about fears & challenges, hopes & dreams and about how we overcome. Through these stories, children understand what it means to belong - to a family, a community & a culture and to the world.
Today, we want children to appreciate that the world is their oyster and through folk literature, children appreciate the commonalities & differences among us, the importance of our past & how we have evolved. These stories ground children with a good sense of what it means to be human - in their thinking, their actions & their desires. This understanding is crucial as children grow & folk literature in all its simplicity begins the conversation with children about what it means to be human.
