Hans Christian Andersen Playlist This quote by Hans Christian Andersen, who started writing stories when he was a child, is a perfect way to inspire any young writer. “Everything you look at can become a fairy tale and you can get a story from everything you touch.” Teachers: Try using this quote to get your class thinking and then ask them to write a story about something they have touched.
“Reading books makes anything seem possible.”
