Every Child Should Know. THE ULD-KNOW-LIBRARY. Published by. DOUBLEDAY, DORAN & C. IN. for THE PARENTS' INSTITUTE, INC. Publishers of "The Parents' Magazine". The fairy tale is a poetic recording of the facts of life, an interpretation by the imagination of its hard conditions, an effort to reconcile the spirit which loves freedom and goodness and beauty with its harsh, bare and disappointing conditions. It is, in its earliest form, a spontaneous and instinctive endeavor to shape the facts of the world to meet the needs of the imagination, the cravings of the heart.

Several tales are quite gory and these tales should be read first by the adult before deciding if they are appropriate for the child(ren) in question.

Navigation for this ebook as well as others without active table of contents is simplified by adding your own highlight on the story title or chapter # as it first comes up. I got this version yesterday eventhough my wife has it on her kindle and complained about no table of contents. Last night as I was reading the stories, I highlighted the story title as if first appeared on the screen. After doing this several times, I went to view your notes/highlights, and lo and behold there they were with location # and title, highlight the title and press the 5 way control and you are now at the beginning of the story..... great for re-reading those stories to those grandkids who always want to hear the story again and again and again.
Hope this helps to all who are concerned about "No Active Table of Contents".

This is collection of well known fairy tales by Grimm's and others, with an introductory on the history and importance of fairy tales for children. Most of them would benefit from illustrations, but if you just want the text, it's fine. Since I plan on handmaking a picture-book for my nieces, it suits my purpose. I do wish the Table of Contents was clickable, however.

The book includes:

One Eye, Two Eyes, Three Eyes
The Magic Mirror
Hansel and Grethel
The Story of Aladdin
The White Cat
The Second Voyage of Sinbad
The Golden Goose
The Twelve Brothers
Tom Thumb
Cinderella
Puss in Boots
Blue Beard
Sleeping Beauty
Jack and the Beanstalk
Little Red Riding Hood
Jack the Giant Killer
The Three Bears
The Princess On The Pea
The Ugly Duckling
Beauty and the Beast
Umrdana
This collection of fairy tales consists of many from collections familiar to readers like Grimm, Arabian Knights, Hans Christian Andersen and Charles Perrault. Some are less familiar such as The Light Princess from George MacDonald.

There are no illustrations in the collection. Certainly some of these tales will inspire the reader to visualize many terrifying characters that might defy illustrations. In any case, I would not recommend them to young children because there is a great deal of violence and some morbidity. The language of these tales is not always twenty-first century and many prejudicial attitudes are displayed within. There is no formal table of contents: the reader must go to the chapter headings to find the name of the tale. Readers will be familiar with many of these, The Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, Tom Thumb, and Hansel and Gretel. Allow me to preview two of those less well-known.

In One Eye Two Eyes, Three Eyes we meet a woman who has three daughters. The daughter who had two eyes was shunned because she looked too much like ordinary people. She was treated much like Cinderella by her mother and sisters. But one day she meets a woman who gives her a magical phrase to say to her goat every time she is hungry, “Little goat, if you’re able, Pray deck out my table.” So from that day on, Two Eyes never went hungry and her family became very jealous. When they find out her secret, they kill the goat. Two Eyes retrieves the goat’s insides and buries it in front of the house. It produces a tree with leaves of silver and apples of gold that only Two Eyes is able to retrieve. Will there be a happily ever after ending?

The Light Princess tells of a king and queen who are childless for a long time. When a long-awaited daughter is born, the king forgets to invite his sister, Princess Makemnoit, who happens to be a spiteful witch. She appears at the palace without invitation and puts a “light” spell on the princess. This spell deprives the child of all her gravity. The baby floats up and down and has to closely watched. As the child grows, the child develops a love of water and swims in the lake for hours on end. The princess has no sense of balance. The King’s Council of Metaphysians urge her to become knowledgeable of all earthly sciences like history and geology. One day a prince comes along who is determined to woo her. Will he be victorious or will the Aunt’s spell continue to plague her?

The tales are entertaining, if sometimes dark and unsettling. Reading them provides a fascinating base for discussion of similarities, differences and themes in this genre. If you like fairy tales, you will be intrigued by a study of this collection. Be forewarned that these stories are not for the feint-hearted reader. In general I would recommend for children ages ten and above or a reading of selections chosen by adults for younger children.

These tales are left as originally written with all their unhappy endings, inaccuracies of history, cultures, and geography intact. These stories have NOT been made pretty for children accustomed to Disney. There were a few tales I had never heard before, and I consider myself to have had greater exposure than average to old versions of fairy tales and folk stories. I think the title of the book is not quite true. Several tales are quite gory and these tales should be read first by the adult before deciding if they are appropriate for the child(ren) in question. I find many of the tales to be perplexing because good doesn't always win over evil. Lazy, uncaring children do fabulously well, and making the smallest of errors can prove to be deadly and without recourse.

Fairy Tales Every Child Should Know by Mabie is a wonderful collection of classic tales. For instance, Hansel and Grethel documents the food scarcity throughout the land and how the children coped with the scarcity. The story of the White Cat is about the life and times of a beautiful white cat kept by a palace prince. Everyone has heard of Sleeping Beauty in the Wood - a most amazing tale for children.

There is a considerable list of short tales contained in this volume - all geared for young audiences. Examples are:
The Golden Goose (Grimm's Fairy Tales)
The Twelve Brothers (Grimm's)
The Fair One With The Golden Locks (From the tale by the Comtesse d'Aulnoy)
Tom Thumb (first written in prose in 1621 by Richard Johnson)
Blue Beard (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
Cinderella; or, The Little Glass Slipper (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
Puss in Boots (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)
The Sleeping Beauty in The Wood (from the French tale by Charles Perrault)

Overall, this book is a huge value because it consolidates many of the most important classics for children.
