Once Upon a Fairy Tale Vol I

Price: $27.50

Publisher: Rudolf Steiner College Press:

Seller ID: 10145

ISBN: 0916786048


The worldwide popularity of Walt Disney’s film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs compelled me to write about the real meaning of fairy tales.

Reading these original stories carefully, one discovers that each phrase, even each word, is deliberately chosen to stress the true background of the events told. In our times it is increasingly necessary to give young children fanta... View more info
