Brief Book Summary : This book is a medley of the famous Aesop fables, each containing a moral. Eric Carle ties in his rich illustrations with the classic tales to reinforce the messages in the text. The most noticeable change in the text is the addition of a stated moral at the end of each fable. The painted-paper collage artwork is now reproduced larger than before on whiter, glossier pages. Libraries with shopworn copies of the earlier books on their shelves may find that the fresher, more vibrant-looking artwork here is reason enough to purchase this one.
Twelve Rabbits and a Turtle: Bilingual English French
Grades K Each tale appears on the left-hand page with its corresponding illustration on the facing page, making for a sometimes text-heavy experience. His illustrations just brightened up the whole page, and I loved flipping through. I agree with Kirkus that it is nice to have the grasshopper survive in the end so that it also appeals to that audience. Even though it may contain ten of the same stories as his original Aesop piece, I really believe that this is an excellent read because of the full page pictures and moral stated at the bottom of each page.
It's very easy to follow with the pattern of text, picture, text, picture, so anyone can follow along. Eric Carle gets five stars in my opinion. Evaluation of Literary Elements : The characterization and symbolism in this book are very representative of the types of personalities Aesop and Eric Carle are trying to address in the stories themselves. Each animal is specifically chosen to illustrate the moral of the story better. Lions, for example, are characterized in proud, strong characters. Foxes are chosen for witty, sneaky characters.
The choices for the characterization and symbolism represented by the animals are excellent to help illustrate the choices and morals in the stories. Consideration of Instructional Application : I think for my application of this book I would like to have the students write their own fables with a moral. They could cast characters to whatever they would like whether it be animals or famous people. I think it would be fun to find out more about tendencies of people or animals to cast appropriately to the message they would like to portray.
Each student could draw a picture of a scene from their fable and then explain why they chose each character to be played by that animal or person. View 1 comment. Jul 01, Natalie Haldeman rated it it was ok. Brief Book Summary : This book is comprised of different stories on each page followed by a picture to correlate with it.
The book is make up of 11 different stories. Each story has a short sentence at the end of it that briefly explains the moral of each story. This edition includes eleven of Aesop s fables, opening with the story of the lion who came to learn that even small creatures can do big deeds. In a version of the story of the hardworking ants and the grasshopper who frittered his summer away, the community of ants takes the grasshopper in most generously, making for a celebratory ending to the collection rather than the traditional demise of the grasshopper.
The book is illustrated with Carle s trademark painted tissue paper collage, each story ending with the customary moral. The language of these retellings is simple and direct and designed to be accessible to today s young readers. The hare and tortoise of traditional Aesop collections, for example, have been renamed in the titular story. The narratives convey a friendly avuncular version of a classic storyteller s voice. Some of the stories have been gentled for a younger audience. Text and illustrations are on facing pages. The lack of indentation in the text makes for an overly blocky look, not too easy on the eye for the adult reader, and possibly harder to decode for a younger one.
An exploding frog, a jealous blackbird, a vain crow, and a clever lamb are just some of the characters in this collection of timeless stories retold by a much beloved author-illustrator. The eleven Aesop's fable retellings in this volume were previously published in Eric Carle's Treasury of Classic Stories for Children, a much larger work that also contained fairy tales and folktales.
This new collection, with its brightly colored full-page collage illustrations, is a fine way to introduce children to Aesop and the concept of fables. I like how the first review goes more in depth of the book, and explains the plot of a few of the stories. I also liked how the first review stated that this book has been gentled for the younger audience. I would have never of known that if it wasn't for this review. Evaluation of Literary Elements : I like how this book is unique such that on each page there is a different story being told.
It isn't a continual thing.
The things to take away from each story such as the morales are listed at the bottom of the pages, which is helpful. Consideration of Instructional Application : Students could focus on the morales that are written at the bottom of the stories and elaborate on them. They could do this by discussing with the class what they think each morale means. Students could also recreate their own stories using the morales at the bottom of the pages for their inspiration. View 2 comments. Feb 26, Rachel Curtis rated it it was amazing. Each story ends appropriately with the moral. His illustrations are done in his signature style of "painted-tissue-paper collage".
This is a great book and a wonderful presentation of 11 great fables by Aesop. I would most definitely recommend this book to all. Mar 22, Emily Smith rated it really liked it. All of the fables are two pages with the fable on one page and an illustration on the other page. Also, after each fable there is the lesson that was supposed to be learned. For example, below the story of The Cat and the Mouse, the lesson is "An idea is not always enough.
The story of The Rabbit and the Turtle is about a rabbit and a turtle trying to find something fun to do during the afternoon. The rabbit suggested a race because he was very quick on his feet. The turtle did not want to do that but the rabbit said that he did not want to do it because he was afraid of losing. So the turtle agreed to a race. When the race started, the rabbit was so quick with his long legs that he was winning immediately. The turtle, however, was slower because he had short legs and a heavy shell.
The rabbit was beating the turtle so badly he took a break. After a while the turtle caught up to where the rabbit was resting. The turtle asked the rabbit if he was giving up but the rabbit said that he would catch up to him. The weather was so great that day, that the rabbit started to sleep and when he woke up it was nighttime. The rabbit thought that he could still catch up to the slow turtle but when he rounded the last corner he saw the judge pinning a first place ribbon on the turtle. The rabbit was so surprised that he lost.
The judge told the rabbit that slow and steady has won many races. The lesson of that story is "slow and steady wins the race.
Not only is there always a message to the stories, the illustrations are interesting too. Even though it is only one picture, that picture sums up the whole story. Such a rabbit will need its teeth trimmed every six to twelve weeks, or the incisors removed surgically. If your rabbit stops eating properly, or dribbles a lot chin always wet , the teeth should be checked. Sometimes the front teeth are all right, but the molars back teeth have developed sharp edges.
Your vet will need to correct this problem, possibly under anaesthetic. Embed Size px. Start on. Show related SlideShares at end. WordPress Shortcode. Cherlly Sawbunga Follow.
