Jack and The Beanstalk
Jack and the Beanstalk
Once upon a time, there was a young boy called Jack. He and his mother lived in a tiny cottage in a tiny village. His mother was a very poor widow who took in washing to make money, but she never made very much. Jack did everything he could to help her. They had an old cow that gave milk, so Jack would milk her every day and walk to the market to sell the milk. One day, Jack’s mother told him that they couldn’t afford to keep feeding the cow and they would have to sell her. They were desperate for money, and she was worth more that the milk she gave.
