The Story Pipers

“Imagination really does not enter into the problem, because in telling fairy tales it is we (the adult) who do the imagining. The child only listens. (The young child) cannot distinguish well between real and the imaginary, between things that are possible and things that are merely “made up”. 

                                                                             -Times Education Supplement, 1919, reprinted in AMI communications, No. 2, 1975
