Stories are part of the children's imagination, and the whole entanglement of children's narratives is familiar. The enchantment of the formula "Once upon a time" ("Ellen & Brewster", 2002). As English teachers, we can not ignore the potential of authentic and meaningful resources in the context of English teaching in the 1st Cycle, as well as the various levels of responses that can be derived from their use in the classroom (Mourão, 2015) .
