The Crow and the Pitcher is a fable ascribed to Aesop. In the fable, a thirsty crow comes upon a pitcher with water at the bottom, beyond the reach of its beak. After failing to push over the pitcher, the crow devises a clever plan: it drops in pebbles, one by one, until the water rises to the top of the pitcher, allowing the crow to drink.

Avianus, a Latin writer of fables, follows the fable with a moral that emphasises the virtue of ingenuity: "This fable shows us that thoughtfulness is superior to brute strength..."

Other tellers of the story stress the crow's persistence, while George Fyler Townsend, the translator of the standard English edition of Aesop's Fables, concluded with the old English adage, "Necessity is the mother of invention".

Now your child can enjoy this timeless classic tale in Chinese. The book comes with Chinese characters and the Pinyin (phonetic transcriptions), making it an excellent means of learning elementary Chinese. The book ends with a Q & A, which helps parents engage their children in a discussion about the story.
