Fairy Tale Culture Kits

Fairy tales are an important part of childhood, helping children learn story elements such as character, setting, plot, and so forth. Nowadays, there are many diverse retellings of all the classics, which help to enrich our understanding of other cultures. These kits focus on four well known stories: Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and Little Red Riding Hood.

Each kit includes four picture books, a set of manipulatives (educational toys) for retelling the stories, caregiver instructional materials, and a resource manual complete with QR links for read alouds, other cultural extension videos, and links to library databases for further reading. This is a great way for children to further their story comprehension skills and practice oral storytelling abilities.

Kits will be added to our collection this week and will circulate for three weeks. Although they are available to anyone with a CW/MARS library card, they are only available for checkout at Upton Town Library and must be returned inside our library. Replacement cost for a damaged or lost kit is $150. See our YouTube channel for another description of these kits.

This project was generously funded by a grant from the Upton Cultural Council.
