I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy-Tales, and there are so many that I haven’t read! They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review. Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don’t even make sense. Some of them are well known fairy-tales and some have never been told. Some are fairy-tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children.
This story should be told to kids!
This story is about obedience and admitting when you do something wrong.
A little girl is taken by Mother Mary to heaven and is given the thirteen keys to each part of heaven. She is told not to open the thirteenth door, but she does anyway but never admits that she does.
She is vanquished from heaven and put in the woods of earth. She has three chances to admit what she did wrong, and she never does until she is about to be killed for a sin she did not commit. She finally admits it and is given a happy life.
This story can tell someone about what it means to lie vs. what it means to admit you lied. It is freeing to tell the truth even if it hurts someone you love.
