The Pandas and their Chopsticks, is the first story in this book and it continues with other animal stories. The Pandas have 3 foot long chopsticks and they are not sure how to use them to feed themselves, but realize it is a lot easier to use them to feed each other across the table. Each story is a “wisdom tale” which has a lesson on life. The other stories in the book include:
The Cat Who Prayed
The Fox Who Was King of the Forest
A Hedgehog Thinks Twice
The Helpful Hummingbird
The Turtle Who Couldnt Stop Talking
The Frog Who Counted 2 Stars from the Bottom of his Well
The Kite on a String
The Owl’s Hoot
A River Discovers the Ocean
A great Children’s book with some great learning opportunities inside and some favorite animals featured in the stories.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
