This One or That One
by Gloria Lapin
The comic, "This One or That One," is an adaptation of the African-American folktale "The Mango Trees." It is the story of a young man who plants two fruit trees but has so much trouble trying to decide which fruit to eat first, that he never gets to eat any. The story gently teaches a lesson about indecision.
It is a colorful, silly tale that is easy to read on a beginning first grade level.
