Children have enjoyed Hans Christian Andersens fairy tales for centuries He has taken them to different places to experience different things He has expose them inadvertently to nature beauty and art through his eloquent descriptions He has created tales which teach children spiritual moral social psychological and emotional educational values His stories have made millions of children around the world think and feel and have made them compassionate toward people animals and nature Through exploration of his fairy tales we will see how he makes their emotions come alive in children The Ugly Duckling one of his simpler tales has been adapted many times making it understandable for even the youngest child This tales has even been adapted in a tune which is well know and sung in nursery schools toady The basic plot of this story involves a small duckling that does not look like his siblings He is therefore not accepted by any of his own He eventually become a beautiful swan and is then welcomed in by the other ducks The important lesson in this story is that the duckling always stays beautiful inside Children feel compassion for the poor duckling that is shunned by his peers hopefully teaching them that teasing is wrong This story is especially poignant in todays society with all the multi-culturalism in todays schools Hopefully children will realize that different is not wrong or bad Moving on to The Little Match Girl this story may teach children social responsibility as well as appreciation for what they have Andersen teaches this lesson though his fairy tale It is very different than a parent telling a child to be grateful for what they have Children leave this story with compassion for the less fortunate A small girl freezes to death trying to sell matches on a freezing cold New Years Eve This young child is afraid to go home because she feels her father will beat her
