The Girl Who Wore Too Much : A Folktale from Thailand by Margaret Read MacDonald, et al (Hardcover - May 1998)

Reading level: Ages 4-8

Like most young girls, Aree likes fine clothing and jewelry. So when word comes of a dance to be held in the next village, Aree can't make up her mind on which dress to wear. Racked by indecision, she decides to wear them all until she learns that excess can be a burden and that impressing her friends is not the same as keeping them. Full color.

Girls aged 5-8 will love this book!, January 8, 1999
Reviewer: A reader from Chicago, IL My daughter (aged 7) identified with the Thai girl in this story, found herself caught up in the girl's desire to dress beautifully for her friends. Then, when the ending twist came, she wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry--but she loved it! I recommend it for parents and grandparents to share with early elementary aged girls (especially). the illustrations are also very colorful and appear to be culturally accurate.

A stranger carrying only a fishing pole comes to a village in this morality tale. Every time the pole touches water, the man brings out a fish. "One person, one fish," he says solemnly as he evenly distributes his catch. When the king hears of this, he wants more than his one fish.

The simplicity of the story is complimented by the robust illustrations....
