I grew up reading fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. I remember my mom reading those stories to me before going to bed. She also bought me books with colorful graphics. I enjoyed reading them over and over again when I was young. I also imagined myself as part of the story. It was fun to play make believe.
Today we commemorate the birth of Charles Perrault, the author behind these classic childhood stories. Google Doodle pays tribute to the French author.
