To make life easy for the teacher the answers are provided at the back of this book.

The Enchanted Princess, Rip Van Winkle and Snow White and Rose Red are four entertaining fairy tales which are guaranteed to captivate your students. Through these stories, students are encouraged to recognise the importance of kindness as a value and understand what a value is and the different ways that they can be highlighted in texts. Each activity page is visually appealing and gives students the opportunity to develop their listening, reading and creative skills. Answers are provided at the back of this book.

Teaching SELF-ESTEEM Through Fairy Tales is the third and final book in the Teaching Values through Fairy Tales series.

Snow White and The Seven Dwarves, The Emperor and His New Clothes, The Farmer, His Son and The Donkey and The Ugly Duckling, are engaging stories which will help students understand the importance of having high self-esteem and about the consequences of having a poor self-image. Through the careful construction of each activity page, students are given the opportunity to demonstrate their literacy skills and to recognise that all texts, in different ways, promote values. Answers are provided at the back of this book.
