FANTASY VS.REAL-LIFE STORIES

FANTASY VS. REAL-LIFE STORIES        
BY
Linda M. Penn
 
            “Oh, Mom, I’m too old for that “baby” book with the talking monkey.  I want to read stories with real-life people.”
 
            There is your sign, parents and grandparents!  Kids will tell you themselves when it’s time to sell or donate some of those fantasy books that you’ve read over and over with your children.  That signal, however, does not mean they will give up reading fantasy stories forever.  They might choose books with real-life people who do or get involved with magical things, generally where good overcomes evil.
 
            For those of you with little ones who still love the fantasy stories much more than the real-life stories, the opportunity may arise to discuss some sensitive issues with them.  For example:
 
1)    fear – some fantasy books have scary pictures and scary looking characters.  Are different looking characters always mean?
 
2)    stereotypes – some fantasy books may portray step-moms and/or step-sisters as mean; grandmas as all bent over, walking with a cane, gray hair up in a bun, doing nothing all day but baking cookies.  You might need to “set the record straight” with these and other stereotypical characters.
 
3)    sadness – some fantasy books have sad parts.  Discussing this issue with your child may help them face sad situations in their own life.
 
In closing, LISTEN to your kids’ signals about what kinds of books they want to read.  For me, I love both kinds of books, even as an adult.  I recently read a collection of scary stories from Kentucky and I read a real-life book about the American Revolutionary War in Kentucky.  I enjoyed them both.
 
            Here’s hoping you and the children enjoy those special reading times together, and please try to find some time to relax and read something - just for yourself!
 
            Come back the first of December for the next Blog – ‘THE GIFT OF READING!”  God bless and Happy Thanksgiving.  Your thoughts are always appreciated.

The real story is so different and fantasy story is like the imaginary thing. It is same like that you see the dream but you cannot control it. It is good to read the views about the difference between the real-life stories and fantasy stories.
