This storybook had a very important message--being thankful for the gifts you receive--presented in a very gentle manner. it's an Italian folktale we read for school and would be a nice compliment to any exploration of the spice trade.

I really liked this folk tale because it shows the differences between cultures and the things that matter the most.
