It is impossible to imagine the development, life of every child without a fairy tale. Fairy stories are a powerful tool for instilling in children such important life principles as conscience, mercy, and justice. They teach the belief that evil will certainly receive punishment, and good is invincible.
If you decide to write a book of fairy tales, then please determine for yourself what skills you want to teach children through your creativity. What will the child take from your book? What mood will you get?
What will help you write a book of fairy tales?
First of all, decide on your audience. For each child's age, there is a specific theme of fairy tales. A seven-year-old child will no longer be interested in reading and listening to a tale about a turnip.
Before writing a book, think about how old the future reader or listener of your books is.
Keep your book relevant and grab a child's attention from the very first lines.
There are several age categories:
- early childhood
- preschool age
Don't forget about the benefits of what you write about. A fairy tale is, first of all, a playful way of teaching a child, and only then - a way to have fun.
How to choose a theme for a book of fairy tales?
Many magical, wonderful tales have accumulated over the entire history of the development of literature. Excellent books have been written by such well-known authors as S. Ya. Marshak, A. N. Tolstoy, D. I. Kharms and others. We remember their colorful style, the magic of the pages from childhood.
There are also many modern authors: ZI Pavlyuchenko, EI Zueva, E. Rakitina, etc. With the aim of writing a book of fairy tales, I recommend reading for a start those authors who have already published their works. Fairy tales are:
- folk (folklore)
Also, fairy tales are divided into:
- about animals
Think about what topic is close to you and future readers? Before writing a book, just choose one and try to open it as deeply and interestingly as possible.
Publish a book
Your collection of fairy tales has been written and now the question arises: how to publish the book? To begin with, I advise you to turn to literary portals on the Internet, such as "Samizdat", "Izba - reading room", "Poems.ru", etc. Now on all sites for authors there is an opportunity to protect your rights, so there is no need to be afraid plagiarism.
If you are thinking about how to publish a book in print, then there are many publishing houses with which you can solve this issue: Rosman, Makhaon, AST and others. Submit your manuscript to multiple revisions and if the editor likes your work, they will publish you and pay a fee.
