Golden Fairy Tale Illustrations

Do you like the enchantment of fairy tales? 

 

Beautiful and enchanting fairy tale illustration poster prints are for sale at my Collage Montage art store.  These gorgeous illustrations were painted by a group of creative  artists from the “Golden Age of Illustration” between the late 1800’s and into the early 1900’s. There was a period of time when demand was high for beautiful and lavishly illustrated children’s fairy tale books and novels. A group of artists became well known during this period because their atistic style was rich with color from the Orient combined with the fantasy of the fairy woods from the Victorian Era.

Take a look and browse around to see which Princesses and Maidens have been added to my art store at  Collage Montage.

In honor of Mother’s Day, I’m posting a digital collage I created, while remembering my mom read to me as a child. She read many fairy tales to me out loud at first.

As a kid, it’s great to have some time with your parent, whether they are your mom or dad, to read out loud. Reading out loud to your child helps them understand the sounds in language. This helps them learn how words are spelled and sounded out. Reading out loud, pausing to ask the child what the letters are, reading with expression, all help a child learn to read and become interested in reading.

Always put reading first in your child’s life. Allow them to see you writing and they will become interested too. Learning to read, and look forward to reading, is the first step in doing well at school.

When I think of my Mom, I always think about how she marked an interest in reading for me as a child. This interest stayed with me for life.
