Text Sets in Grade 2: Fables - 9 Read Aloud & 99 Guided & Independent Reading Books

from Jerry Pinkney's The Lion and the Mouse
Text Set: Topic - Fables

All of the read alouds are fables. Joseph Bruchac's Turtle's Race with Beaver is a Seneca tale based on the Aesop fable, Tortoise and the Hare (Jerry Pinkney text). So too is Pat Mora's The Race of Toad and Deer, a Mayan fable. The morals of each fable are different though. Arnold Lobel tells 20 original fables in his text, each with an accompanying illustration. Pinkney also retells and illustrates The Grasshopper and the Ants and The Lion & the Mouse.
