I became fascinated in all kinds of books and the one that still captures my attention are books about Fairy Tales. Mainly Fairy Tales from around the world have Myths and legends, stories of boogie men that parents tell their children to keep them in bed at night.
I love the story of Babi Yaga… it always frightened me and still gives me the heebee jeebees. (Slavic FairyTales)
The Changling also has a lot of different variations, Dave’s mother used to call them “brownies”
Changing things up for kids is a great idea, even for us, because the world doesn’t just end at our borders and it is wonderful to see the world outside of our own myths!
