    1. Returning to the magical illustrations of Gennady Spirin, I learned that the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk is actually than 2,000 years old Earliest findings indicate that a King Corineus, a ruler of Cornwall, was depicted as wise and brave and one who roamed the countryside riding the areas of ugly, troublesome giants Throughout history, the legend has changed from a violent trickster who randomly robs for the fun of it And, now over the years, the tale evolved from a King, a trouble making g [...]

    2. I absolutely adore this story I always have so reading this has brought back wonderful memories from my childhood This particular version is very thorough and detailed Since it is very thorough, the book includes a lot of text This makes the book appropriate for nearly all ages I am not a huge fan of the illustrations, simply because I prefer vivid colors, but the text is wonderfully written so it does not really matter One of my favorite fairy tales

    3. Summarized this version with classes after reading the shorter Steven Kellogg version When used together, the two versions make Jack seem like a hero and less an opportunistic thief I prefer Kellogg s illustrations and humor, but like the additions to the story Beneduce includes.

    4. Jack and the Beanstalk retold by Ann Keay Beneduce and illustrated by Gennady Spirin This story was a remake of the original Jack is a poor boy who trades his family s cow, Milky White, to a farmer he met on his way to the market He trades the cow in exchange for five magical beans When Jack returned, his mother was furious She sent Jack to bed and threw the beans out the window The beans then grew into a huge beanstalk that grew so high, it reached the sky Jack climbed the beanstalk and right b [...]

    5. This story was a lot different than the version I m familiar with In this version, when Jack goes up the beanstalk there s a fairy that tells him his father s fortune is guarded by a giant and Jack has to take it back to his mother The version I m familiar with has Jack go up the beanstalk but he meets a goose that lays golden eggs which he wants to take back to his mother but hes caught by a giant This version is similar to the one I know because in both Jack finds something valuable that he an [...]

    6. Jack and the Beanstalk is about a young boy named jack and his mother They are very poor One morning Jack s mother asked him to go to town and sell the cow so that they would have money to buy food On his way to town, an old man offered Jack magic beans in exchange for the cow When Jack returned home, his mother was very angry and threw the beans out the window When Jack woke up, he found that there was now a huge beanstalk where the beans had been thrown After climbing the beanstalk a couple ti [...]

    8. The watercolors pictures in this book are incredible the amount of detail done is intense They look very realistic with the textures and drawn in 3D They also have an older feel with the time period outfits and the manuscript type boarders and font I also like how the boarders match the page and really set up the words The grotesqueness of the giant and the innocence of the boy is clearly vivid with the dark colors used for the giant and the lighter colors used for the boy The fairy is uite inte [...]

    9. I liked this retelling, and Spirin s illustrations are always good for getting lost in a story Here Jack is a lot younger than usual, maybe six or so years old, but still very clever Also, the giant stole everything from Jack s father, so when Jack steals it back, it s not exactly thievery There is also the inclusion of a guardian fairy who apparently lost her magic for a while, which I ll admit was confusing a bit since there was no real explanation for that, but not so much that it damaged the [...]

    10. Jack s mother wants him to sell his cow for money so that they can eat Jack sells his cow for three magic beans instead.In this classic tale that I remember as a child I do not remember the white woman with a wand This book had a moral that a child should not listen to a stranger The giant s wife is very nice to feed Jack when he is hungry, but then Jack goes and steals from her until the giant catches him The only way to get away is for Jack to cut down the beanstalk This is another good moral [...]

    11. Grade 3 4 Genre TraditionalAwards Use After reading this work, my students would create a bean garden We would discuss the fantasy side of this story and how it is impossible for Jack to climb to the sky on a bean stalk Each student will have his her own bean plant and every day we will properly care for it water, fertilizer, etc We will measure its growth once a day for two weeks and then we will calculate how long it would take each students bean plant to reach the sky like Jack s did.

    12. Many different forms of Jack and the Beanstalk have been published over the years In Ann Beneduce s version, she did a fascinating job of setting up every page to look calm and aesthetically pleasing The pictures were pleasant to view and give a good feel in describing the text The illustrations and first word of every page match the theme of the old medieval time setting I think younger children in the elementary levels would love being read this story to but might struggle reading it themselve [...]

    13. I enjoyed the illustrations in this book, this book was a magical book how the beans grew this giant stalk.
