Fairy Tales

Fairy Tales and folklore tales are found across the world from antiquity onward, in both oral and literary form. Often featuring fantastical creatures or settings, this unique genre of literature has been read to children generation after generation and makes up a unique aspect of our shared childhood experiences.

Shop fairy tale anthologies, classics such as the Arabian Nights, as well as works by the Grimm Brothers, Hans Christian Anderson, Andrew Lang, and others in the Fairy Tale & Folklore Shop.

The Real Mother Goose

Nursery Rhymes, like Fairy and Folk tales, have been handed down orally from generation to generation. While they might not be as old (the first collections arrive in the mid-1700s), they still speak to years of history and years of family play with young children.

Shop Mother Goose & Nursery Rhyme anthologies, as well as picture books based on popular rhymes, in the Nursery Rhyme Shop.
