Happy Birthday, Jacob Grimm!
Today marks the 227th anniversary of the birth of Jacob Grimm in Hanau, Germany. Without him and his brother, Wilhelm, we might be without priceless folktales such as Rapunzel, The Fisherman and His Wife, Little Red Cap, The Bremen Towne Musicians, Rumpelstiltskin and Hansel & Gretel. To celebrate, read a folktale, either to your favorite child or just for your own pleasure!
