朋友,无论你是小学生还是中年人,童年中应该都少不了格林童话吧,小的时候经常捧着厚厚的一本格林童话看的有滋有味:美丽的公主,神秘的森林,阴森的城堡,邪恶的巫婆……格林童话以其简洁生动的故事,幽默轻松的语言影响了一代又一代的孩子们,带给我们的是快乐,是对知识的渴望,是对哲理的思考。

    格林兄弟是德国民间文学搜集整编者。他俩共同编成的格林童话故事集共二百一十篇,可以说篇篇都是精品。其中脍灸人口而又令人百读不厌的有《灰姑娘》、《白雪公主》、《小红帽》、《勇敢的小裁缝》、《笨汉汉斯》……等名篇,已成为世界各国儿童喜爱的杰作。

    也许紧张的都市生活让你疲乏困倦,甚至睡觉都不安稳,那么可以翻一翻这些影响过你童年的故事,它们还是那么温馨,那么美好。童年时期精神的食粮也将是你一生受益不尽的宝贵财富,每天晚上读上几篇,明早起身会精神饱满地走向生活。

灰姑娘的故事大家一定再熟悉不过了:一个善良美丽且心中永远怀有希望的“灰姑娘”;一个邪恶自私的继母;两个愚蠢懒惰又丑恶的姐姐;一个当你需要的时候会出现的仙女;一位深爱着你的英俊的王子;一只失落的水晶鞋。也许每个小女孩在年少时都做过“灰姑娘”的梦,期盼着真正欣赏自己的白马王子有朝一日能带着水晶鞋来找自己;如果你的梦想还没有实现,还没有找到生命中的王子,那么请向灰姑娘一样保持乐观的态度:“if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true”。

he wife of a rich man fell sick, and as she felt that her end was drawing near, she called her only daughter to her bedside and said, “Dear child, be good and pious, and then the good God will always protect thee, and I will look down on thee from heaven and be near thee.” Thereupon she closed her eyes and departed. Every day the maiden went out to her mother’s grave and wept, and she remained pious and good. When winter came the snow spread a white sheet over the grave, and when the spring sun had drawn it off again, the man had taken another wife.

The woman had brought two daughters into the house with her, who were beautiful and fair of face, but vile and black of heart. Now began a bad time for the poor step-child. “Is the stupid goose to sit in the parlor with us?” said they. “He who wants to eat bread must earn it; out with the kitchen-wench.” They took her pretty clothes away from her, put an old gray bedgown on her, and gave her wooden shoes. “Just look at the proud princess, how decked out she is!” they cried, and laughed, and led her into the kitchen. There she had to do hard work from morning till night, get up before daybreak, carry water, light fires, cook and wash. Besides this, the sisters did her every imaginable injury—they mocked her and emptied her peas and lentils into the ashes, so that she was forced to sit and pick them out again. In the evening when she had worked till she was weary she had no bed to go to, but had to sleep by the fireside in the ashes. And as on that account she always looked dusty and dirty, they called her Cinderella. It happened that the father was once going to the fair, and he asked his two step-daughters what he should bring back for them. “Beautiful dresses,” said one. “Pearls and jewels,” said the second. “And thou, Cinderella,” said he, “what wilt thou have?” “Father, break off for me the first branch which knocks against your hat on your way home.” So he bought beautiful dresses, pearls and jewels for his two step-daughters, and on his way home, as he was riding through a green thicket, a hazel twig brushed against him and knocked off his hat. Then he broke off the branch and took it with him. When he reached home he gave his step-daughters the things which they had wished for, and to Cinderella he gave the branch from the hazel-bush. Cinderella thanked him, went to her mother’s grave and planted the branch on it, and wept so much that the tears fell down on it and watered it. It grew, however, and became a handsome tree. Thrice a day Cinderella went and sat beneath it, and wept and prayed, and a little white bird always came on the tree, and if Cinderella expressed a wish, the bird threw down to her what she had wished for.
