Once upon a time now

Being a child is learning, which means absorbing the world around with the entire body. When a child is immersed in the story written or spoken word as if playing a game, he/she develops abilities necessary for life: trusting in the good, courage, fear, wonder, and joy, fantasy, morality, measure and weight of people and things, the capacity of judgment and observation. Therefore, children’s yearning for fairy tales should be taken seriously. When looking in their eyes we can recognize how powerful words can act, how fairy tales can meet the emotional, cognitive, and psychological demands of children, their need to belong, to act, to share, to feel protected. Stories speak to the “I” of the child. From my experience, while working with kids, I have noticed that through the fairy tales we are showing them life as one great panorama.
