This reduced the hardship and brought a better way of life. This book is age appropriate for 2nd -3rd grade. The illustrations were dark and left for interpretation. The style was primitive and the font was manageable. This is a good example of learning self reliance and the rewards that come from it. You can have the children make their own rug out of scraps of different materials.… (more)

Interesting book, highlights some history as well as folklore. Wanted a little more, a great "beginner story" for laptime or story time.
