Here is a curious reprinting of a 2002 original publication. The design of both covers, both inside and out, has changed and some new information and new items have been added, for example, on the front cover's upper right corner and bottom center. On the inside pages, the date -- 2002 -- has been removed from "© Evan-Moor Corp." The only date I can find in this copy is the copyright date of 2002 on the inside front cover. Amazon continues to use a date of 2002, illustrating this printing. I will include comments I made on the original publication. For each of eight fables the teacher helps students of Grades 2 and 3 to create portfolios with pockets full of projects. After, e.g., the TH pocket is labeled, a young student fills it with a bookmark, a text of the story, a "What is the moral?" sheet, a medal for the winning tortoise, a comparative chart on the characters, and a report on some real race. Some of the projects are quite ingenious. For LM, e.g., students are invited to write briefly on one side of a blank paper doll how someone helped them and, on the other, how they helped someone. For MM, each student gets a jar of cream from which to make butter.
