Classic tale

This has been one of my favorite story since I was little. I still live it today.
  BeckyPugh | Jul 19, 2014 |
Wonderful! Full-length version of the story, with lovely descriptions and rich language. The illustrations are meticulous and as usual Jeffers especially shines when portraying animals and the natural world. LOVE the double-page spread of Hansel and Gretel coming home in the moonlight forest. ( )

Classic story of Hansel and Gretel. ( )
  rwalsh06 | Oct 20, 2013 |
I love the story of Hansel and Gretel. This story is such a classic folklore. It is about a brother and sister who get lost in the forest. They end up at a witches house, and she tries to eat them. The brother and sister end up breaking free. I would read this to my class and have an activity based on it. I could have my students create their own witches house. I think my students would enjoy that. ( )
