Fairy tales are treasures for growing children and for loving adults. Often used in the Waldorf curriculum in the early grades fairy tales are valuable for learning lessons, building resilience and enjoying fantasy.
This book is the classic fairy tale that has been beautifully illustrated with colourful chalk drawings by Maurizio Marco Rossi. They are vibrant and mesmerizing and compliment the story.
Definitely not a Disney-version of this fairy tale, there is an evil witch, and terrible things do happen. But these stories are valued for, and are so appreciated in the Waldorf curriculum, because of the RESOLUTION. Everything comes full circle. Life was good - bad things happened - things get better with persistence and believing - goodness prevails. The end.
