“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be even more intelligent, read them more fairy tales!“
– Albert Einstein
Reading fairy tales improves concentration and memory, encourages the development of the mind, imagination, and critical thinking, establishes empathy and self-awareness, develops language skills, and all this significantly reflects in achievements in school and life in general. At the time when education was oral and within the immediate community, fairy tales were created for these reasons. They have always been an indispensable part of children’s education and growing up, and each new time brought new fairy tales.

Aleksandar Zolotić (to himself): “Yeah…right. It’s thundering and flashing lightning in your head …”
And he was right.
