The fairytale from the pea's point of view! I go have GOT to get this book! This would be great to use with older students to teach point of view of other fairy tale objects, like the spinning wheel in sleeping beauty! What a great writing lesson!

A walk in my shoes...: 4th grade Anchor Charts
Great for inference...Elizabeth, a beautiful princess, lives in a castle and wears fancy clothes.
