There are 24 separate stories in Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know.

Stories with plenty of familiarity, but may have some surprises from the way they were portrayed by Disney or other modern tellings include: Snow White (or in this version, the Magic Mirror), Hansel and Gretel, Aladdin, Ali Baba, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, The Golden Goose, the Three Bears, Beauty and the Beast, etc.

The author of this book of fantasy stories, Hamilton Wright Mabie, beautiful recorded these great lines for children: “The fairy tale belongs to the child and ought always to be within his reach, not only because it is his special literary form and his nature craves it, but because it is one of the most vital of the textbooks offered to him in the school of life.

“In ultimate importance it outranks the arithmetic, the grammar, the geography, the manuals of science; for without the aid of the imagination none of these books is really comprehensible . . . No one can understand the modern world without the aid of the imagination, and as the frontiers of knowledge are pushed still further away from the obvious and familiar, there will be an increasing tax on the imagination.”

A great read, full of stories that every child should know.
