Strangeowers are watching over her How Chinye discovers the magic of the gourds and transforms her life. .
Yed the mood of the events that happened in the storyEvaluation of Literary Elements This West African folktale is a great icture book for young readers Even though it is a West African tale and might be for young readers Even though it is a West African tale and might be for students to be able to relate culturally Onyefulu does a great job of making the story easy to relate for readers In addition throughout the whole story there was a balance of good vs evil and goodness vs selfishness between Chinye and her stepmom and sister The whole a balance of good vs evil and goodness vs selfishness between Chinye and her stepmom and sister The whole I was rooting for Chinye and was nervous that something bad was going to happen to her However at the end of the story everything worked out in her favor like the way it should have Onyefulu did a great job of making the end of the story unexpected and had readers think Consideration of Instructional Application Chinye is a West African folktale that many students were never aware of rior to reading this book However I think this book is a great asset to have in the classroom This is because it is a culturally diverse book and it is easy to comprehend the meaning This story is also very similar to the fairytale Cinderella The teacher will explain how this story is similar to Cinderella after reading Chinye out loud in class Students will talk about the similarities and differences between both stories and then act out a Ye Castle Stinketh: Could You Survive Living in a Castle? play that combines both stories This is what we did in LLED 402 when we re made a fairytale This will have the kids be creative and make the fairytale somewhat cultural I was hoping this would have of Chinye being actively kind to the forest creatures instead of them just takingity on her though the story does retain the element of the wicked stepsister not heeding instructions and thus reaping calamity instead of rewardA bunch of reviews
Liken This Story Tothis story to Creole icture book The Talking Eggs which I don t think I ve read but certainly there are a variety of folktales in this vein I was thinking of Diamonds and Toads God bless the Internet where I could Google folktale mouth jewels lizards and have the thing I was thinking of be the first hit or Mufaro s Beautiful Daughters which is in the Cinderella vein than this one on account of it having a marriage lo. Is enchantingly retold in this traditional West African story of goodness greed and a treasure house of go.
