BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR...
Let's say you are out in the ocean fishing and caught a turtle that could make all your wishes come true. What would you ask for? Would you ask for simple things or almost impossible things?
In this newly adapted tale from the Grimm Brothers, the fisherman and his wife are always in disagreement. One wants the fancy things in life while the other wants only the simple things. Can she actually get her impossible wishes and can he stop her from wanting them?
I grant you the time to read the story.
THE FISHERMAN AND THE TURTLE adapted by ERIC A. KIMMEL and illustrated by MARTHA AVILES.
For grades 2nd through 4th.
