really liked it
bookshelves: children-s-literature, food, gardening-and-growing, friendship-and-social-negotiations

Typically we've used this in the classroom when studying gardening, fruits, and vegetables (particularly root vegetables) with the children. On occasion we have also connected it to other trickster tales, but I would be interested to read it alongside other version of the slave story, particularly with slightly older students (I work primarily with 4 and 5 year olds). I think the comparison process could lead to some very rich conversations.
