FairyTale Friday – Jack and the Beanstalk

  I like Jack and his beanstalk. I think it’s funny that if you are rich in a fairy tale, no matter how you got rich, you can easily marry a princess and live happily ever after.

Fairy Tale Friday ~ The Tinder Box

I’m always amazed by these children’s stories that do not have a good lesson or teach some important value. That is the case with The Tinder Box. This story comes from Denmark. It’s about a soldier on his way home from war. He meets a witch who gives him all the gold, silver and copper he could ever want in exchange for bring her a tinder box. The solider double crosses the witch, kills her and keeps the money and the tinder box. He spends all his money and is reduced to poverty. No lesson about “A Penny Saved.” Then … Continue reading →
