I think that too many children's stories have questionable morals. Not that I'm a prude or anything but when children grow up getting taught that stealing gold from giants and get really rich makes you a hero (like Jack) then how can we expect them to be more reasonable?
So I wrote this story. It's called "Jack & The Beanstalk" and I'd appreciate editorial advice, pictures for it or if you'd to tell it to your children
Thanks! I replaced germinate with sprout and I'll change Jack's mother so that her *request* to Jack is not a direct order. I like that the market is not as good a place to get stuff as from the neighbours. At the market you only get gold.
much of what my neighbours consider to be good I consider to be bad

That's part of my moral. Another part is that gold isn't worth as much as beans are. You can turn beans into gold easily. Turning gold into beans depends on market pressures, like availability.
