In March, we read "The Rich Man and the Shoemaker," by Jean de La Fontaine.
Is it better to be poor and happy or rich and careworn? In this charming fable by La Fontaine, adapted by Bernadette Watts, a cheerful shoemaker finds his own answer to this question when his wealthy neighbor tempts him with unimaginable riches.
Here are the little handouts that went with the story. We read the story and then talked about what is our "pot of gold." Most of the girls talked about their family and friends.
