The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales List

Do You Know the History of the Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales List

Many people that know of the Grimm brothers fairy tales are not aware the stories were not written by the brothers Grimm. In fact the two brothers were famous in their own right as language scientists. As linguists they were researching the origins of the German language.

The easiest record of various old German dialects was via the folk stories still told by story tellers of that age. As the brothers traveled from region to region, city to city, they realized the possible importance of putting to record these wonderful stories they were hearing. So that was what they did, in addition to their own professions. They recorded two hundred and ten wonderful fairy tales, some of which are still very popular today.

Actually all are still popular to some extent. Some have been picked up by the modern media, like Disney and Pixar. For example the mega hit movie Tangled, the modern Rapunzel story. The stories were published in two main parts, the first having 86 fairy-tales on December 245h in 1812. The second stage of publication was  published two years later, in 1814 with 70 stories.

 A third publication included many personal notes and explanations of the stories and the morals they meant to teach to the young and old alike. There was a publication in 1856 that combined all 200 stories plus 10 child legends, not as well known.

It is our intention to publish children's colouring pictures to print and color highlighting each of the 200 Grimms brothers fairy tales. We shall update this blog post with a link to each set of Grimm brothers fairly tales colouring pictures as they are completed.

Here is a list of the brothers Grimm fairy tales, each title with a link to the story, should you wish to read that particular story.

About This Blog

This blog started out as a private blog. The goal was contact and communication with my children as I traveled. Posting fun coloring pages with great colouring pictures to print and colour gave all of us enjoyment.

Now two of three children have grown and left the nest. Two years ago we made our coloring pages public, mostly on Hubpages. Their unreasonable and questionable restrictions of first amendment rights of their members lead to us leaving Hubpages and using the Blogspot / Blogger system.

We hope you get as much enjoyment out of these free coloring pictures and other childhood education materials as we do providing them.
