I am very interested in fairy tale stories since I am creating an enrichment program for preschoolers based on fairy tales. Although The Wide Awake Princess will not work in a preschool setting, it seems like an engaging story as a read-aloud for any elementary school class. I love books based on traditional fairy tales that offer a little modern-day twist. Especially, if "the twist" involves a more assertive and independent female.

The Fantastic Adventures of Baron Munchausen looks like another good fairy tale that might appeal more to a male audience in the classroom that sometimes gets overlooked in this genre.

I love to read Fairytales to the class I work in, you can really get the students to use their imagination. I would really like to read, The Wide-Awake Princess and Ivy's Ever After.
