Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The young boy watching sheep in this fable by Aesop grew bored with his job. He decided to add some excitement by crying out for help because the wolf had come to attack the sheep. The villagers all rushed to help and the boy thought it was such a joke that he laughed at his trick. Not satisfied with doing it once, the shepherd did it again and once more the villagers were tricked. Of course when he cried wolf the third time, no one came and this time the wolf was real. As the introduction indicates, fables are stores that can teach you something and the challenge for young readers is to figure out what the lesson is. The book closes with two pages of puzzles. In the first puzzle readers are asked to put the pictures that represent the story into their proper sequence. The second puzzle offers several words and asks readers to associate them with the boy or the villagers. The answers are provided. The closing page has a message for parents, caregivers, and teachers. Suggestions for reading this Guided Reading Level E "Tadpole Tales" book with children are also provided.
