This book would be a good fit for primary elementary grade levels. It is a tale about Sylvester, a donkey who discovers a magic pebble. A problem arises when he uses his magic pebble to make wishes and accidentally wishes himself into a rock! This book is a fun story about appreciating what one already has. This could be a good book to utilize for readers theater or a creative writing assignment about what you would wish for if you discovered a magic pebble and what would happen. ( )
