The Crow and the Pitcher
This is a better copy of the fifth printing. I will leave both copies in the collection. Here is the sixth book of this series of ten. Pearson Learning Group is not mentioned, and the publisher's address is Carlsbad, CA. The word count is 265. Sixteen pages. This crow repeats several times I must have water or I will die. The artist underscores the text's insistence on the many stones it takes to bring the water level up. It just goes to show you, sometimes all you need to succeed is more patience, not more strength! Four things are unusual about my acquisition of this book. First, it came from Better World Books through Amazon. Secondly, it belonged to the Davenport, Iowa, school district. Thirdly, it cost about three times the amount of other books in this series that I bought from Amazon. Fourthly, this copy is slightly creased at the center of the page throughout the booklet. It looks like Dominie yielded the rights to this book to the Pearson Learning Group sometime after 2003. Finding two of the books of this series has led to finding many more including this one. Acquiring individual copies, I have arrived now at a total of nine out of the ten. I had to order the whole series of ten then from the publisher to make sure I got that last member, BW.
