dc.description.abstractI include this book in the collection not because I think The Gift of the Magi should be viewed as a fable but because this volume is part of a series that is labeled Famous Fables. This twenty-page children's picture book extends onto its back endpaper with tips for parents, including strategies, discussion questions, and activities that grow out of the story. The visual artist may do an even better job than the storyteller here by showing the Magi on a table in the simple home of Annie and Jim. The irony of the two gifts comes out when Annie wants to see how the new chain looks on Jim's watch, just as he would have wanted to see how the new combs look in Annie's hair. Each gave up his or her treasure to buy the other something for her or his treasure. A perennial story.en_US
