Huffington Post article disappoints (takes fairy tales at face value)

and

and my comment for said article…

I agree fairy tales are important and told early. However, I feel it is flawed to say “who wants to hear the tale again.” The whole point of fairy tales is their oral nature (short, not many details so we are able to fill in). That’s why we tell the story over and over again. When we retell these stories we are doing what the genre begs us to do…so please don’t discount the power of the fairy tale

 

Sigh…seriously they are SO missing the point
