The Fox and the Grapes by Christopher E. Long

I really enjoyed this book especially for a younger group of kids. It is a fun story and easy to follow along. I also really liked that an animal was the main character because a lot of kids really enjoy animal books and you can make really fun activities to go along.
The vocab in this book was a little easier but also still enough that you could make a lesson out of it. My favorite thing about this book though was the moral behind it all. The fox got upset because he was not able to get the grapes. I think it important to teach children that just because you are unable to get something that does not mean you should get mad and upset about it. Being positive and thankful for what you do have is so important.
