The Gold-Giving Snake by Mick Gowar
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Exciting stories from around the world told in fewer than 180 words, suitable for children who are starting to read independently. The series introduces readers to stories from other cultures and encourages them to find where the story comes from on a map. This tale comes from India. Haridatta is a poor farmer. He works extremely hard, but his son and wife are very lazy. Then, one day, Haridatta meets a snake who gives him gold every day...The tale has echoes of The Goose That Laid a Golden Egg - will greed ruin all the good luck? Puzzles at the back of the book encourage children to reread and retell the story in their own words, and helps build vocabulary by matching words to characters.
