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 CAN be told to young kids. It isn’t vulgar, and it has a life lesson with it: always intend to keep your promises.
A very pretty princess loses her favorite toy. A frog tells her that he can get it if she promises him something. She says she will promise what he wishes, but in reality she doesn’t intend to keep the promise.
First off: This story comes off a little odd. Why won’t the kind frog just be kind and get the toy? Why does he have to get something in return? Why doesn’t the princess want to keep said promise?
There are lessons in this story, so I would say it is an easy read and possibly something enjoyable by young kids.
