The Blind Men and the Elephant and Other Silly Stories
"The Blind Men and the Elephant" is more than just an amusing tale. It offers readers a final, meaningful thought--neither someone who is blind nor someone who can see well can truly judge the whole when only knowing part of it. "The Simpleton," "The Foolish Weaver," and "The Field of Boliauns" engage readers' imaginations further, providing amusement as well as showcasing storytelling conventions, such as tone and creative word choice, that are part of the Common Core language arts curriculum. Illustrations complement each tale with colorful interpretations of characters and events.
