PreK Bits - Peas and Royalty
What are the virtues of a real Princess?
She will have good manners.
She will be exceedingly sensitive.
She may apply and interview to marry a Prince.
The PRINCESS And The PEA is a classic folktale by Hans Christian Anderson.
It can be retold in many ways.
Ms. Rachel presented the African version in storytime this week, based on the version by Rachel Isadora The PRINCESS And The PEA.
Here are more versions to try:
ASL Tales: PRINCESS And The PEA which includes a DVD of the story in ASL sign language.
The PRINCESS And The PEA in Kit format, to let a learning reader follow the book, while a CD speaks the words.
La PRINCESA Y El GUISANTE is written in both Spanish and English languages.
The VERY SMART PEA And The PRINCESS To BE is the tale from the view of the Pea ... a favorite of mine.
Each version will be slightly different in how the story goes.
It's fun to consider the possibilities!
