    Tales Retold for Young People

    Folk tales, it must be remembered, were created by adults, and originally they were told or sung to grown-up audiences. They date from time immemorial. Whenever tales were told, it is probable that children gathered on the outskirts of the audiences, and even in early times parents probably told folk tales to their children much as parents still do.

    As an outgrowth of this interest, collections of folk tales retold for children began to appear in England and America. The re-tellers of these tales recognised that in most folktale collections there were elements unsuitable for children. They believed that such themes could be omitted or changed without losing the folk quality and character of the original tales. Joseph Jacobs, Andrew Lang, Alfred Church, James Baldwin, and Howard Pyle were among those who showed the way.

    Countless tales have been retold singly in picture-book form for small children. They have also been turned into films, filmstrips, and recordings for children.


    2. Add the following paragraph after paragraph one:

    In folk literature few books for children appeared until after the middle of the 19th century. As always in publishing, these books came about because of a demand from the people. Early in the 19th century in England, Charles Lamb pleaded that the child's power of imagination be nurtured by fairy tales, not deadened by pedantic literalness. Other writers reasoned that the child's sense of wonder was a precious possession that should be satisfied by literature which had grown out of the same sense of wonder.
