An Education with Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio

I learned about Collodi’s original version of Pinocchio about a year or more ago, when I mentioned on Facebook that we watched the Disney version with our kids, and my very well-read cousin (yes, you, R) told me of the “real” version. I love this version so much more than the Disney-fied, saccharine story. I haven’t yet read it with the kids, but now that I’m reminded of it, we will soon, at least with S, our older one – I think the story may be a little dark for 4-yr-old J.

Thanks to the blog “the contextual life” for reminding me of it.
