There is an immense volume of Hans Christian Andersen publications and teaching material relevant for the basic school, which in Denmark refers to pupils from the age of six to the age of sixteen.

An attempt to catalogue and grade them would be a huge task. Such a recording would become continually outdated due to new publications.


If you are looking for material for a course on Hans Christian Andersen that is suitable for a particular grade, or if you have a particular angle in mind, you might benefit from making target research in various library databases.
