    I had nightmares as a kid & it didn't do me any harm.

    Yep. Lots of fairy tales. We have a few books that have stories from around the world. I also have most if not all Enid blyton books.

    Enid Blyton wrote over 700 books, I want to see your library!!

    I'm a big collector of hers too. Think I've got about 100. Looking forward to being able to read them to my daughter as they were read to me. The Enchanted Wood was the first book I remember reading. I definitely remember nightmares after reading The Red Shoes as a kid though . . . I won't be passing that one on for a while!

    I will be for sure. Fairy tales and nursery rhymes are great for so many reasons. They are a great way for kids to learn about narrative and the structure of story including things like plot, characters, setting etc, in a classical way. I agree with PPs though some of the fairy tales can be pretty gruesome. Blue Beard still gives me the heeby jeebies!
