Ans. to #1

Fables are stories used to teach a moral to people. They can be used for enjoyment, but their main purpose is to teach.
Folk tales are simple, unadorned stories. They are used to explain aspects of a society and natural events. They are usually stories in which good overcomes evil and justice is served. They are associated with the common people.
Fairy tales are often folk tales that have been adorned with many of the aspects of literature. They are more involved and polished than folk tales. They can sometimes be frightening and include violence.

Ans. to #2

Fingerplays can be used to teach basic concepts. They are excellent tools to make smooth transitions between activities. They can be used over again, with each repetition increasing them being learned by the children, thus fostering active participation in a language activity.

Ans. to #3

Mother Goose stories are easily used to stimulate language acquisition and to develop social behavior rules. They contain wonderfully simple humor and easily lend themselves to flannelboard dramatizations and art activities. In addition, they are a rich source of our heritage.

Ans. to #4

Realistic fiction tells a story that could have actually happened. It often deals with a real-life problem or situation and contains characters who seem ordinary. In fantasy fiction, the author asks the reader to suspend the rules of reality for the story. Fantasy stories often take place in fairyland and contain such things as talking frogs, trees with emotions, and dogs that behave like people.
A teacher should use each type because to not do so would eliminate a tremendous source of material from classroom use. There are many books of each type written for young children. In addition, fantasy allows children to stretch their imaginations and to share a unique form of literature. It can also deal with problems that are easily identified by young children.
