Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin. In a country not so far from here, not so very long ago, a series of classic and contemporary childrens’ books were published, drawing on generations of tales for naughty and nice children, everywhere and bringing joy and happiness to everyone who found a copy. Mums and dads rediscovered the joy of sharing traditional fairy tales and moral stories with their children, while kids realized there’s more to life than touchscreens, social media and online games. From fairy tales to contemporary children’s books, evergreen classics, short stories, long stories, TASCHEN’s books for children make story-time a moment of enchantment, wonder and delight.
Parents everywhere will remember the childhood magic found in the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, or legendary Norwegian folklorists Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Engebretsen Moe. Now you can thrill your children with these and many more authors and illustrators of American, German, Hungarian, Italian, Mexican, Norwegian, Russian, and Swedish descent. In this age of technology and digital overload, what could be more nurturing and natural than a good, old-fashioned family story-time?
Beautifully-illustrated, exquisitely-presented, our books for children revive the golden era of storytelling in gorgeous, high-quality books which will be cherished by kids everywhere. Children will be entranced by the dark, sinister undertows in the tales of Hans Christian Andersen, who in turn, was influenced by the moral stories of the Brothers Grimm. These tales have stood the test of time to be as relevant, enthralling and memorable as ever. Furthermore, we have stories about playful snowflakes that have come to life, losing one’s mittens, encounters with the Sami people in Northern Scandinavia, celebrating the Chinese New Year, and much more.
So, if you are looking for the perfect book to read with the finest children’s stories, discover our series of books for kids, whether Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen fairytales or short stories from around the world, our kids’ books feature beautiful illustrations and timeless stories in exquisite presentations. Storytime isn’t complete without these must-have editions of TASCHEN’s children’s books classics.
