The Blue Fairy Book by Andrew Lang, explores the theme of beauty, heroism, and virtue.

All fairy tales attempt to help people know how to be good people.


Fairy tales show that people face adversity, but, if they believe in themselves, they can overcome obstacles. Stories can help children confront real-life fears and anxieties in a fantastical setting.


These stories draw them in, transport them to another place, and make them feel something — fear, happiness, worry, or excitement to name a few. They speak to universal themes of good versus evil and moral values like hard work and kindness.
