Jack and the Beanstalk

This week we've been reading this Jack and the Beanstalk story by Nick Sharatt. It's a lift-the-flap book which the children always love. It also came with an accompanying cd so we can play the story again during rest time. This version of the fairytale classic differs a bit than the usual story. For a start the golden goose is a hen and the giant isn't so much into "I'll grind your bones to make my bread." My son had been doing a fairy tale focus at his school this term and that's all I…
