National Mother Goose Day
Every generation has been exposed to fairy tales from all corners of the globe, from Disney’s tellings of famous storytellers to our grandparents or parents reading us stories from the Brother‚Äôs Grimm. There are many storytellers, but one stands out. She is the name of almost all fairy-tales. National Mother Goose Day is a reminder of this important storyteller, as well as the vital role she and other storytellers played during our youth.
Mother Goose and fairy tales also play a fundamental role in introducing young children to reading. It was decided that fairy tales were essential for our reading development that it took a day to create awareness and encourage reading in preschool settings through nursery rhymes and stories.
These stories have played an important role in our lives. They introduced fantasy concepts and challenged us to do better. They challenged us to think about the moral consequences of our actions, and encouraged us to be kind. Nursery Rhymes combined words and pictures to show us that rhymes can work magic. National Mother Goose Day is a reminder of the magic and lessons these stories have taught us.
