Children's LiteratureThis blue level book, a part of the "Read-it! Readers" Spanish series, provides colorful and vibrant illustrations to accompany the text. The introduction of the story begins with the definition of a fable for children and the identification of Aesop's fables. In this story, children will read about a donkey that the author deems lacking in intelligence because he decides to don a lion's skin that he finds on one of his walks. The donkey then decides to frighten all the animals that live in the forest, and people are not immune to his prank. In his practical joke, he inadvertently lets out a bray and a clever fox realizes that he is not a lion after all but a donkey underneath the lion's skin. Young readers can discuss the moral to the story after reading this fable. An Accelerated Reader quiz is available for this selection. The blue level in this series introduces new ideas, larger vocabulary, and a variety of language structures for beginning readers. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 4 to 9.
