8 Fractured Folk Tale Books Your Students Will Love

When the fractured fairy tale line of books came out, I bought every single one. I used them for so many different standards. Now that there are fractured folk tale books, too, it’s even better! There are so many standards that these book series can help you teach. Folk tales fall within the 2nd standard in the RL domain. This is all about recounting and retelling stories, folk tales, and fables. It also has a huge focus on the moral and central message of the story. These fractured folk tales can cover all those standards, plus you can dive into perspective (point of view) and compare and contrast. They’re also fantastic illustration-focused books. So let’s dive into these fractured folk tale books that you should add to your classroom library.
