When the Emperor announces how he plans on choosing his heir (the child who raises the best flowers from a seed given by the Emperor), Ping is excited, but worried he will not win. Especially after his seed will not grow. But when all the children present themselves to the Emperor he is not pleased at their beautiful plants! The answer might surprise you! Finish the story with The Greatest Power. Beautiful and well-told folktale. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
Companion to the fantastic story, The Empty Pot. Once again, Demi has created a fabulous story with amazing, bright, detailed illustrations. Emperor Ping has challenged the children of China as he once was by asking them to show him the thing that has the greatest power. The answers given are a delightful journey to what the surprising answer is. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
Hey kids! Dads! (others too!) Have you read all the Captain Underpants books?? Then you'll laugh through Werewolf Club by Daniel Pinkwater - the ORIGINAL zany storyteller.
Fun, fun, fun reader for beginners, or even for a read aloud. Modern day "cowboys" and their trusty horses (bikes) have problems and adventures.
