Happy Birthday to me! (and Charles Perrault!)

Charles Perrault's interpretation of Cinderella.

The other day I was surfing the web and thought, “I wonder who I share my birthday with?” Charles Perrault was the last name on a list of celebrities & other famous people. Now, I have to admit I did not have any idea who he was or what he was known for, although his name did look familiar. After some digging, I found out that although he lived in the 17th century & was a French writer, we have something in common (besides our day of birth). Mostly, it has to do with fairy tales – he wrote them & I LOVE THEM. 🙂

On this day I would like to say thank you to Mr. Perrault for writing such wonderful tales that have lasted through the ages, my childhood (*cough* and adulthood) would have been much less imaginative & with fewer dreams had it not been for those stories!

Did you know that the GRCC Library has an entire section of children’s books? Below are a few of Charles Perrault’s most famous tales that can be found in our very own collection here at the GRCC Library:

Stop by today & check some tales out for the “little ones” in your life! 🙂
