A Very Wide River

Fish or fishing?

Amelia lived in a house on the banks of a wide river. Their garden had large trees with juicy apple fruits. She was friends with two crocodiles who lived in that river. Though she had everything, she was sad when she saw the children on the other side of the bank. The children were poor and didn't have much to eat. So one day, she got an idea, she threw an apple over to the other side but the apple but her crocodile friend, Ray, ate it. Then she decided to send the apples on the back of the crocodiles across the bank. But something unexpected happened.

We picked this book for its title. The story is based on the maxim, teach a man to fish, and you feed him for life. The illustrations are bright, and the storyline is easy-to-read for young children.

A Very Wide River by Asa Childress is a colorfully illustrated moral story on social wisdom for young children.
