Fairy tales were told in antiquity, they are told and composed even now. The heroes have changed, the places of action have changed, but one thing has remained unchanged - in the battle of good and evil, good always wins.
A fairy tale is just such a story that is better perceived by children of all ages. She educates and teaches, helps to usefully spend leisure time. Vivid characteristic images from fairy tales affect consciousness and give a clear idea of good and evil to the child. All these fantastic stories contain certain stereotypes of behavior in a particular situation, offer ways to solve problems and life tasks. Often, fairy tales tell about a weak and helpless hero who, as a result of overcoming difficulties and difficult obstacles, becomes strong and wise. This is what reflects the essence of growing up and makes this process understandable for children. And the tasks that the character solves teach the child not to give in to problems, develop the flexibility of the mind, everyday ingenuity and cunning. The hero meets many other characters of the fairy tale on his way, talks to them. Children, reading or listening to a story, comprehend communication skills and memorize the behavior patterns of characters, all this develops them and prepares them for life in the real world. Adults, telling a work to a child, change the timbre of voice and intonation, thereby acting as a speech therapist. Kids literally look into the mouth of the narrator, involuntarily memorizing his movements and facial expressions. There are fairy tales for different ages. A child under three years old should not read the fairy tales of Pushkin, Carroll or Astrid Lindgren. Start with Kolobok, Kurochka Ryaba and other wonderful Russian fairy tales.
