Summary: Jack and his mom are hungry and have no money, so Jack trades the famiy cow for magic beans instead of money. The beans grow into a giant vine that Jack cliimbs. Then Jack steals gold and a singing harp from a giant . His mother and him never go hungry again.
Personal reaction: I remember reading this story as a kid and wishing that I could find magic beans. As an adult I read this story and can only think about Jack disobeying his mom and stealing.
Extension Ideas: I could use this book to discuss right from wrong. Making good choices . My second idea would be to teach about beans and then try to grow different kinds of beans.

This is the story of an emperor of China who loves the song of his nightingale bird. However, once the emperor of Japan hears the plain gray bird sing he decides to give a machanical beauitful jeweled bird that sing waltzes to China's emperor. All is well, until the mechanical bird breaks. The lovely song of the plain gray nightingale has not sung since the arrival of the artifical bird. It is not until the bird hears of the emperor's illness that the bird comes back and sings again.
Personal Response:
This is a nice story that shows how being plain and doing something wonderful should be appreciated.
Classroom Extensions:
1.In the classroom this story can help students appreciate differences among individuals and realize their own self worth.
2.Have the students draw pictures of a jewel bird that is wound up and a natural bird. ( )
