A master storyteller, Thornton W. Burgess instills important lessons about animals, nature, and the environment. With the nostalgic charm of an earlier day, this tale will beguile today’s youngsters as much as it enthralled children generations ago.
These animal story books are a perfect compliment to the second grade Animal Fables block, the third grade Farming (and foraging) block, and the fourth grade Person & Animal block. They can be used as read-aloud treats in the afternoons, evenings before bed, or weekends. They can also be used for “quiet time” when a fourth grade student wants or needs to read alone.
