Each book in this beautifully illustrated series presents a different folk tale from around the world. This book tells the story of the Unhappy Stonecutter, a traditional Japanese folk tale. In it, a simple stonecutter learns that you should count your blessings and be grateful for what you already have, instead of always wanting more!
This is Book 7 in the Folk Tales from Around the World Series. See all Folk Tales from Around the World books here.
