Here you will find a large collection of well-known fairy tales for kids! They are based on the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, but were adapted to modern language.
Classic fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm
The brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm traveled through Germany in the 19th century collecting stories. They listened very carefully to the people and wrote down their stories. This is how the famous collection of “Children’s and Household Tales” by the Brothers Grimm was born.
And to this day, the stories inspire children and adults alike. Whether “Hansel and Gretel,” “Hans in Luck” or “The Frog Prince” – Grimm’s fairy tales are full of magic and adventure.
But strictly speaking, they are more than just entertaining stories. They are like little signposts through life, because they always contain an important moral as well. They show us that courage and kindness are rewarded and that greed and selfishness usually do not result in success.
Stories from another time
The stories are over 200 years old and were not originally written for children. In their original version, some fairy tales contain brutal and stereotypical elements that do not fit into our contemporary values. Nevertheless, they belong to the literary history of the country and are a part of our culture.
Therefore, before reading the fairy tale to your children, please consider whether it is suitable for them or not. Alternatively, you can find a collection of great children’s stories here.
