Jack and the Beanstalk Reviews
Pretty traditional telling of Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack really comes off as the villain in this one. The giant's wife wasn't in the other tellings I've read, but she is the one who shelters Jack from her husband in this. She's kind to Jack, but he keeps robbing the giants. Sure, the giant husband eats people, but the giant wife seems like a nice giant. Jack, on the other hand, is greedy and gets away with everything. He ends up rich and happy for his greed. Not exactly a great message to be learned from this.
This is another fairy tale classic. But there is so many adaptions done of it and different version that I have become a little bored with the story and felt like it has been widely overdone. All of the stories are basically the same though. Jack sells his cow for magic beans and a stalk grows to the sky where a castle of giants live and Jack steals from them. I hope it teaches kids not to steal but it makes it look like stealing is beneficial. I would recommend this book for ages 4 and up. Hopefully generations to come find some sort of new found appreciation for Jack and the Beanstalk.
This is the age old tale, told again, and rather well.However, something about the illustrations "cheapened" it.Not in moral terms, but...they did not add to the story in a way which was appealing to me.Perhaps, because the characters' faces seemed distorted, as if seen through a fish-eye lens. Why would that bother me...? No idea.
This book is an excellent version of the Jack and the Beanstalk story. I have a Jack marionette and beanstalk which was created during my art class. They can be used together to create a great reading experience for 1st-4th grade.
a beautiful rendition
This version was great for younger kids.
Different way to tell the story, using different pictures. All around still the same good ole story.
children will love this. It has a great story and illustrations.
