I love ALL children’s literature…but I have to admit that one of my favorite units to teach is fairytales and folktales! (SHH! Don’t tell the other genres! 😉)

When we teach fairytales and folktales, we want to use stories from a variety of cultures. In some stories, they may see their own culture reflected. In other stories, they get a “window” to learn about different cultures.

So in this post, I’ve created a big list of great options for multicultural fairytales and folktales. The list is separated out into “Kindergarten” and “1st & 2nd grade.”

Fairytales and folktales is a fun unit teach! We can use this unit to select texts from different cultures from around the world. This post has a variety of text suggestions from different cultures.
