    Not yet, but we will. At the moment DS1 is all about the Cat in the stupid Hat. And that's all. Ad nauseum.

    Thank god DH does the reading in this house.

    I'm looking forward to getting into fairy tales and classic kids movies with the boys.

    Yes, we love to read about all sorts of stories and I can't wait until she is a little older to read her Snugglepot and Cuddlepie and Dot and the Kangaroo.

    Yeah I do ... I'm also teaching them to a class I'm teaching this week. We've just been doing a character analysis of the 3 little pigs. I love that it's in the national C2C units.

    I know it's not a fairy tale as such, however I made the mistake of letting the kids watch a bit of 'Watership Down' and between the movie and theme song, I spent all night trying to pacify very upset little girls.
    I am still scarred by that movie.

    I don't have kids yet, but definitely plan to read them fairy tales. I've always loved fairy tales & I'm a huge fantasy fan. My mum read me the Narnia books when I was a kid. They gave me nightmares, but also nurtured my incredibly vivid imagination.

    Yes I do and I don't use those stupid censored ones either. Those fairytales often had messages about trusting strangers and what could happen.

    Technically, the wolf would not have run away, he did and would've gobbled red riding hood up. That story was simply about red riding hood not listening to her mother and talking to strangers.

    As for the "wrong message" they are just stories, much like the ones we read as adults. There is nothing wrong with fantasy and escapism sometimes.

    Yes sure I see your point. But DS is only 2yo. When he's older he can have the uncensored version, I don't want him getting nightmares.
