Kathryn Hewitt, a lover of both music and art, has played piano, guitar, clarinet, autoharp, psaltry, and spoons; she claims that spoons are her favorite, perhaps because of their relevance to food. Her appreciation of the good things in life leads her to paint, read, frequent thrift shops, and eat chocolate-covered raisins. She, her energetic family, and their tolerant neighbors live in Santa Monica, California. [from Lives of the Musicians (1993)]

Summary:
There was a king named Midas. His daughter was the only thing he loved more than gold. One day a stranger who could grant a wish came by. Midas wished for everything he touched to turn into gold. Everything he touched turned into gold, the cat, food, even his prized possession, his daughter. The stranger came back and asked if Midas was happy. Midas said no and the stranger told him how to reverse the spell. He learned his lesson, to be happy with what you have.

Personal reaction:
Sometimes it's hard to be happy with what you have when the grass looks greener on the other side, yet seldom is it actually greener. Something may look better than what we have, but the consequences of what we think we want may be more than we can bare. This story hits home because at the time I am a single mom and a full time college student. I need to be happy with what I have and not wish for so much others have.

Classroom extension ideas:
1. I could bring chocolate coins with gold wrapping to class. Then I would ask all my students what they think would happen if they ate all the chocolate by themselves. (They would get a tummy ache) teaching them the lesson to be happy with what they have and that everything good is good in small quantities.
2. This could be another skit or story they could write about or create in their journal or during writing time using creative thinking.
3. We could make "gold" jewelry, animals, people or food with paper or ingredients.

Critique:
Genre: This story has been passed down and retold again and again. It could not ever take place because all of the animals talk and do silly things (such as wearing clothes). Also, the ending is happily ever after.
Plot: The plot of the story is easy to follow because it starts out with a problem (the potential of the baby dying), and then adds suspense to that problem by creating another one (the sweetheart leaving). The climax is when the sweetheart decides to leave because the pigs are too silly. However, it gets solved when he eventually returns and they get married, and live happily ever after.
