The books for students in grades 3 and 4 are full of fairy tales. Some of these fairy tales you may already know, because they have been told all around the world for many years. Others may be brand new to you. Fairy tales teach us that there are consequences of good and bad actions. Our good or bad actions come from what we have in our hearts. In these fairy tales, people who have kind hearts do good things and enjoy the happy consequences.
