Use this Library Lesson to Celebrate National Tell a Fairy Tale Day

national tell a fairy tale day

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away...

There lived a librarian in search of ideas to celebrate fairy tales at her library. She searched high and low but everything was just so-so. With hands raised in a cry, something caught her eye! Books and activities for students, all spun together with ease. In delight, the Librarian looked to see who was her knight. It was Alexandria Library Software! They had exactly what she needed to celebrate National Fairy Tale Day. And on February 26th, the Librarian and her library patrons had a happily ever after day.

We've tried our hand at telling a fairy tale, how did we do?

Fairy Tale Books and Activities for Your Library

We might not be experts in storytelling, but we do know a thing or two about what media specialists and librarians want when it comes to their library. We have nine books and one library lesson for you to help celebrate fairy tales this February 26th!


Best Fairy Tales to Read at Your Library


Fairy Tale Picture Books

Fairy tales spark the imagination of kids to believe in marvelous, mysterious, and unexplainable things. From places to people to ideas, fairy tales are the lifeblood of everyone’s childhood. Read one (or all!) of these fairy tale picture books to young library patrons. 

Fairy Tale YA Books

Fairy Tales are embedded in our culture. Everyone knows the stories of Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, and more! Many well-known fairy tales are revisited, altered, or expanded upon by authors nowadays. Suggest one of these books to students if they are looking to discover a new fairy tale!
