JUST READ THIS SWEET LITTLE STORY ON A WHIM. IT WAS A FREE KINDLE BOOK AND THE PICTURES ACTUALLY CAME UP ON THE KINDLE AND IF THE TEXT WAS TOO SMALL YOU COULD DOUBLE CLICK ON THE AREA TO ENLARGE IT WHICH MADE THE READING EXPERIENCE SO MUCH BETTER!
THE STORY IS GREAT FOR THE YOUNG SCHOOL-AGE CHILD TO MAKE THEM THINK A LITTLE MORE DEEPLY ABOUT THEIR LIFE EXPERIENCES.
THE REAL PICTURE BOOK, OF COURSE, WOULD BE IDEAL ESPECIALLY FOR TEACHERS AND READ-ALOUDS!
THE PUBLISHER’S NOTES SAY IT ALL:
Based on an ancient and beloved Zen fable, this story is about a wise girl who experiences a series of events that at first seem lucky (or unlucky) but then turn out to be quite the opposite. A bike disappears, but then she gets a new one. She hurts herself, but then she enjoys a nice day at home. For each incident, was what happened good luck? Maybe. Was it bad luck? Maybe. Or, perhaps the girl simply does not get caught up in the emotion of the moment, because she can never know what that event might lead to, good or bad . . .
