9780874838602: Growing Gold (Story Cove)

3 lazy sons are about to discover that hard work presents a golden outcome.


Growing Gold provides a touching story about a struggling farmer and his wife who work very hard each day in order to grow their food and support their family. Unfortunately, their three sons are very lazy and do not help their parents at all. The boys just sit and dream about gold all day as the parents struggle.

Frustrated, the clever mother devises a plan to get her sons to appreciate the value and reward of hard work. She tells her sons about the gold buried under the ground in their fields and that they must work the fields in order to pull the gold up from the ground. Her story works as her sons learn about the value of hard work when they are rewarded with a field of gold.

This Indian folktale about a mother and son will teach readers about the importance of resourcefulness, respect and responsibility.

August House Publishers provides an animated version of Growing Gold as well as free lesson plans!
