    We were reading Jack and the Beanstalk today and I mentioned how Jack was being greedy. This started a long, interesting conversation about the word greedy. Now I decided I want to read more books that have greedy characters so we do it as kind of a theme study. Can anyone think off the to of their head of some books that contain a greedy character?

    A lot of people like to read it around the holidays, but Herschel and the Hannukah Goblins has some greedy characters.

    Ananzi stories often have greediness in them. There is one with his friend the turtle-I cannot remember the name.
