A Grain of Rice by Helena Clare Pittman

A Grain of Rice

By Helena Clare Pittman
Level 3

The official description for this book reads: “A clever, cheerful, hard-working farmer’s son wins the hand of a Chinese princess by outwitting her father, the Emperor, who treasures his daughter more than all the rice in China.” This story is short, but is written well and contains lessons about hard work and exponential growth. The large print and illustrations are nice for early readers.
