Fairy tales at school

Fairy tales, wonderful tales, cultural relics, have survived time.
The definition of the tale is complex. Often cruel, it reflects a time when scaring children at night before going to sleep was an educational method.

Alone in the forest, you will be eaten!

Fascinating to analyse our ancestral fears and anxieties in the face of the unknown.

But the marvellous tale is also an open door to the imagination.
Telling a fairy tale is like planting seeds in the child's mind (1).
