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 for kids not to steal or a giant will come and get them!
