dc.description.abstractThis book is a fellow member with The Hare and the Tortoise Based on a Story by Aesop from 2007 in Usborne's First Reading series. Like it, it is a sturdy book, about 8 x 5, containing 48 pages. This telling dramatizes Tom's emotions when he finds what he thinks is a stone left in place of a stolen egg. When the goldsmith in town pays him a great deal of money for it, he buys Elena a dress, but she says that they need to fix the roof. The next day's egg takes care of that. Soon they have a new house and servants working their garden, and they are rich. But they want more. Elena has the key thought: The little white goose must be full of gold. Is it believable that killing the goose returns them to their former poverty? The last few pages offer a description of fables that sets up for this story's moral: Don't be greedy or you might lose everything. The book has a ribbon to help keep one's place in the story.en_US
