Why choose Fairy Tales?

Our Fairy Tales song collection is jam-packed full of learning for your little ones!

We’ve tried to cram in as many classic stories as we can, as they are so wonderful for firing up little imaginations with magical dragons, scary wolves, frog princes, angry bears, evil witches, beautiful princesses in enchanted far away lands!

With fairy tales you are taken to other worlds in your mind, creating wonderful visuals and experiencing their magical charm. Nurturing a child’s imagination can be such a powerful thing. It can help them to make up stories, characters and games, with creative thought opening up their world. Immersing themselves in imaginative play can enhance communication, vocabulary and later have a positive influence on their writing.

Many schools tell us that our songs provide great stimulation for good quality imaginative play in their settings. We’ve heard of children acting out our Princess and the Frog song using dolls and props, creating funny character voices. Teachers have told us of children engrossed in a game where they collected bones in their outdoor area to feed up Mr. Wolf so he didn’t eat any people!! We’ve had parents and children getting creative, making long Rapunzel hair out of material to swish and tumble while singing our Rapunzel song.

Fairytales hold such a wealth of experiences and with so many stories to choose from to enjoy with your little ones, no the wonder they play such an important role in early literacy.

Many of the songs in this theme help children with the process of storytelling. Hearing a favorite fairy tale over and over again will give children their own storytelling skills. They’ll be able to sequence events by telling the story in the right order. They’ll know what happens next and will be able to anticipate events. They’ll be aware of beginnings, middles, endings and pay attention to important details. All of these things enhance a child’s understanding of language and also their ability to construct sentences, paragraphs and eventually structure whole stories orally.

“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

The music of Fairy Tales

Stepping into the world of fairy tales opens up a range of exciting adventures for adults and children alike, and accompanying these classic stories and themes with magical music can create a fully kinaesthetic experience.

With Fairy Tales we have worked to create a song collection which encapsulates all of the mystery, excitement, humour, danger and fun which fills the pages of classic stories from The Brothers Grimm and others. We’ve worked our way through the most popular fairy tales and created songs for each, including all of the themes, places, characters and objects.

As well as the unmistakable Tiny Tweeties combination of voice and guitar from Chris and Rachael, on Fairy Tales you’ll find ethereal soundscapes woven by flute, harp and piano, stories that everyone will  know mashed up with a bit of gritty rock ‘n’ roll or soulful R&B, and saxophone-infused stomp-along melodies that will have the whole family singing along. As well as taking inspiration from the original stories and classic versions of them, we’ve also been greatly influenced by contemporary interpretations such as Shrek and more recent Disney movies. Where we felt it was necessary, we have slightly altered narratives to promote modern attitudes to gender and positive relationships.

Because of the actions and music in ‘Fairy Tales’ children will be able to recall sequences of events, use repetitive story language, describe characters and retell the stories orally, in pictures and later in writing.

We’ve used different voices, sound effects and synthesizers to bring characters to life, sometimes to make the listener laugh, but at other times to explore feelings, so that children get to explore more complex aspects of human relations, discovering good and bad characters, solving problems and finding solutions. They’ll encounter different emotions; sadness, excitement, joy, anger, happiness, jealousy and more. Experiencing these feelings through story and song can help children’s understanding of the world around them, about their interactions with others, acknowledging feelings and recognizing the difference between right and wrong.

Fairy Tales are a great talking point for discussing these issues. Very young children are aware of different emotions. They feel happiness, sadness and by being aware that others feel it too they can have understanding that feelings go beyond themselves.

Whether you’re listening at home or in the car with your little ones, or using our music to stimulate learning in the classroom, we think you’re going to love the magical journey that Tiny Tweeties will take you on with our Fairy Tales collection.
