This delightful new adaptation is specially designed for your Kindle Fire and is sure to be enjoyed over and over again!
this new retelling of the classic Aesop’s fable, kids are introduced to
a hungry fox who tries to reach for a juicy bunch of grapes that are
beyond his reach. Through his failed attempts, we learn that it simply
isn’t possible to get everything we want. Yet just because something is
not attainable, it doesn’t mean it’s right to scorn it.
I couldn’t help but compare this simple retelling to the original
version of the story. The original has a certain elegance and beauty to
it that I adore. While this version of the fox and the grapes doesn’t
have the same feel to it, both my children and I really enjoyed reading
it. The writing is simple and perfect for engaging younger readers. The
illustrations are really cute and give a nice feel to the book.
