Our Favorite Books: The Atlas of Fairy Tales & The Atlas of Classic Tales

“sometimes you just need to lay on the couch and read for a couple years”

The old adage goes, "don't judge a book by it's cover" but let's be honest, illustrations are a BIG piece of children's books. These two books, which currently rank as some of our favorites have GORGEOUS illustrations! They each include an abbreviated telling of a classic tale or fairy tale and a gorgeous map that goes along with the story. It is such a fun way to explore fairy tales in a new way and the images are GORGEOUS. We give these books a Hip. Hip. Hooray! Guaranteed to provide hours of fun!

Recommended activities:

Create a map of a favorite park or place you have recently visited. Be sure to write down the story of your visit!

These books are great for toddlers but also older chidlren as well. Once you finish visiting all of the beautiful places in these atlases, encourage your children to choose their favorite book and draw or paint their own map. 

Choose a favorite "tale" and use materials you have to create a small world play scene to go with the story
