English Readers: The Magic Porridge Pot

Mackinnon, Mairi/ Semple, Lucy

An engaging retelling of the well-loved European folktale for young English language learners, charmingly illustrated.

From the story by the Brothers Grimm. Katie is a kind girl, so kind that she would give her own scarce food to the animals and the birds. When walking through the forest one day, she shares her bread and cheese with an old woman who gives her a wonderful gift in return. Now Katie only has to say the words and she can have as much delicious porridge as she wants… but how much is too much?

With fun activities after the story, and online audio in both British English and American English.
