The Best Folktale Books for Kids

This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

Reading folktales with kids teaches them history, cultures, and literary elements. Not to mention, inspiration for creative writing and storytelling. If you haven’t started sharing folktales with your kids yet, get started with some of our suggestions. Young children love the fanciful nature of these stories, and older students will enjoy seeing how these legends tie in with the history and geography of different cultures.

What are your favorite folktales? If you have any suggestions to add to our list, let me know in the comments.

Happy reading!

    There’s an amazing audio version of Robin Williams reading Pecos Bill.

    My boys love fair tales and fractured fairy tales too. We laughed so much together reading the Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle series. Thanks for hosting!
