Kids Stories Sources

From a conversation Nefarious had with a new friend at the park…

Nefarious: I’m almost six. How old are you?
Georgia: I’m a big girl — I’m four.
Nefarious: When did you turn four?
Georgia: On my birthday!


Anyway, as I said a little while ago, I think people these days are missing out on a lot of literary references because of the lack of religious education, but I figured that also extends to classic Americana like Brer Rabbit stories, so I’ve been searching those out online and printing them and Nefarious and I have been reading more than ever. I wasn’t sure if she was going to be into these old stories, but so far they’ve been a big hit. Another good source for free kids stories online is the Project Gutenberg Children’s Bookshelf, which has lots of classic fairytales, mythology, and more. I’m actually half considering getting an ebook reader because I’ve been doing so much online reading lately.

    Stanza and eReader are both pretty good, imho.

    I totally agree about the literary reference bit. Even though I’m not in the least religious I went to catholic school from kindergarten through high school. I’ve been to Europe a few times, the first two times with my catholic high school. When I went back with a friend of mine I had so many interesting stories and tidbits to share with her because European history is so colored by religion. Just the front doorways of Notre Dame have a book’s worth of religious symbolism.

    You can certainly appreciate the history and beauty of a place without knowing the religious aspect, but there is so much more depth when you do.
