The Crow and the Water Jug
I made this wordless artist book by using cut paper to illustrate Aesop’s famous fable, as a visual exercise for children learning addition and subtraction.
When a thirsty Crow has the idea to take one pebble from the ground and put it into a water jar, it leaves nine pebbles on the ground.
When that doesn’t raise the water level high enough Crow takes another pebble from the ground and adds it to the water jar.
Now there are two pebbles in the jar and eight on the ground … how many pebbles does it take until at last Crow can get a drink?
