A poem: Jack and the beanstalk

For the alternative versions for adults and older children, visit here.

Jack and mom’s vegetables perished one dry summer

So Jack traded their precious cow for some fodder

Along with his bounty were 5 magic beans

Which Jack planted the best within his means

A giant beanstalk sprung from the ground

And Jack leapt right on it without a frown

What Jack found at its top was a castle

In it lived a lovely giant couple

Jack needed food and money

The giants told him not to worry

They gave him half a bag of gold coins

In return for an afternoon of drudgery and toil

Promising to return for more work and reward the next day

Jack politely tipped his hat and went on his way
