“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.”
– Albert Einstein
Albert Einstein understood the brilliance of reading fairy tales aloud to children. He believed that Fairy tales could pave the way towards intelligence and intellectual growth.
Einstein believed creativity and the development of the imagination to be the most essential elements of intellectual development. He claimed that the equipment of the true scientist was a fully developed imagination. As such, Einstein thought that reading fairy tales aloud to children was the fastest way to develop a child’s intellect by way of the imagination.
I’m thinking Einstein was onto..something!!
