Name : Lindsey Faucher Section : A GENRE : Folk Literature Title of book (underlined or italicized) : Jack and the Beanstalk Author : E. Nesbit Illustrator (if listed on title page of book) : Matt Tavares Publisher : Candlewick Press Copyright date : 2006 Score (see Rubric for details): Appropriate book selected? __yes ___no, may resubmit within one week Critique /2 Examples /1 Writing /1 Surface aspects /1 TOTAL /5 This retold story, containing somewhat extensive text accompanied by full-page illustrations, tells the tale of Jack and how the magic beans he was sold helped save his family. The author’s description of the characters is direct and allows the reader to see the motivation of each person in the story. For example, the main character, Jack, is driven by his need for money to support his mother. His image of a fresh-faced and innocent young boy conveys a sense of goodness to the reader in comparison to the giant who is intimidating and cruel. The setting in this book is not unusual to folk tales in that it allows the reader to be taken into another type of world.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
