“Well as you say, so it is.” Is that a warning or a blessing from the old wizard that our young heroes encounter on the road to the castle, home of the very sick princess? Use this book, with its retelling of a classic Grimm fairytale, to explore the values of honesty and kindness. How should we treat others? Find out as three boys discover that it is important to treat all people with respect and courtesy. When they forget, frog-filled, pig-packed chaos ruins their great plans to bring the healing apples to the princess! Will any of them succeed on their journey? This is a “read it with me!” book for younger children. For older independent readers, we think you’ll find this book is best for those 8 years old and beyond.
