    Difference Between Contest and Competition A contest is usually declared and prizes announced for winners, but often there is an unspoken competition between individuals going on as in a classroom, workplace, an industry, or even between nations to have hegemony in a particular area Competition is a bigger word, both literally as well as figuratively, than a contest But when it comes to definitions, both are used to refer to the other.

    1. Of all the fables of all the world, sometimes I think that Aesop's are the hardest to retell. Not that the moral lessons don't still contain great pearls of wisdom for us even to this day. The wisdom and the folly have eerie longevity, that's for sure. The problem is more that Mr. Aesop appreciated brevity. He knew how to get to the heart of a story without a mess of folderol and flippery. That's all well and good if you're writing a book of multiple Aesop fables, but what do you do if you turn [...]


    2. "Can gentleness, instead of force be an effective way to achieve a goal?" That is the point of the Aesop's fable. This is a cool way retelling with very nice pictures! I really liked the pictures and the contrast from the wind to the sunry strong contrasts and it really proves the point!!


    3. Fabulous story of how the sun outwitted the wind by using gentleness instead of bullying him. The illustrations are gorgeous and it is fun to read because some pages are laid out the opposite way so you have to turn the book to see it.


    4. the mind is the force. Always use your head, your mind. The wind use his power but in the final it lose. When we wanna discussion with other we should respect each other. Kindness is beauty habits.



    5. Summary: One day, the wind decided to show his superiority and made a bet with the sun. If he could make a man take off his jacket, he was the strongest, but if the sun did, then he was the strongest. The wind blew with all his might but was not successful. The sun shone as brightly as possible and the man eventually took his jacket off. Evaluation: I thought this fable was cute and, as always, had a fairly good lesson behind it. It wasn’t my favorite of Aesops but it would be great to use wit [...]


    6. I loved this picture book. It is based on an Aesop fable and talks about how the Sun and the Wind compete with each other to try and get a gentleman to remove his coat. It teaches about pacifism versus bulling to get what you want. Illustrations were amazing as well.


    7. Our "Narnia Closet Capers" story time called for lots of stories about coats. I love sharing this Aesop fable with puppets on craft sticks. However, this book fills the bill if you don't have puppets on hand. There is a man with a coat on. The wind and sun take turns trying to remove his coat. This contest of strength between the sun and the wind calls for some songs about sunshine. Here's "Mr. Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun": youtube/watch?v=FwOomEHere's "You Are My Sunshine": youtube/watch?v=FafLno [...]


    8. This book was really profound to me despite its brevity. The moral is one that is not often taught that most times problems can be solved with gentleness rather than force. I think this would be a great book to use in a classroom when you are dealing with problem solving. It would be great to introduce during a classroom meeting. I think it would also be useful when you are addressing the problem of bullies. This book would also pertain to a unit on Martin Luther King because the sun won the fig [...]


    9. The original fable this book retells is another one of my favorites. This book carries an incredible message about how we should act and would be a great way to teach students about appropriate ways to respond to others and how to react when you do not get your way. It could also be used as a model text to show students how they could write from the perspective of inanimate objects and help for students to think outside of the box of writing only in first or third person perspective with people [...]


    10. The classic Aesop's tale of a contest between the Sun and the Wind who can take a man's coat off first. The wind is harsh, thinking that will help remove the coat (blowing harder, colder, etc.) The sun peeks out from behind a cloud, and warms the air. Overall accomplishing the moral of the story, be kind and bright and don't force anything. I'm always interested to see how illustrators create "wind" because it is so open to interpretation. Would be great short story for a weather unit!


    11. This is one of my favorites of Aesop's fables. Though this is not my favorite illustrated version. I like to stretch my story time crowd with this book and try to instill in them the value of using gentle persuasion rather than force as a means of achieving a goal. 3/14/12I had some older kids at PJ Story Time, so I read this. 3/12/13I never got to do a March story Time due to snow closings, but I did fit it in a PJ Time. 3/31/14Used again in Story Time.


    12. I absolutely love this book because the artwork is stunning. Both the wind and the sun are so animated–the wind so gruff, the sun so benevolent–as they each try to get the man to take off his coat, thereby proving who is stronger. As you may remember, the contest is won by the sun who shines brightly on the man, warms him–and off comes the coat. The moral is not lost on the children.


    13. Based on an Aesop's Fable. The wind challenges the sun to see who can get a man to take off his jacket. The wind uses force and gets nowhere but the sun uses gentleness and gets the man to take off his jacket by shining on him and causing him to be too hot.


    14. A version of the Aesop Fable. Interesting layoute words and pictures aren't always facing the same direction. Has a good message that being happy and positive like the sun has a better effect than being cold.


    15. With a couple of small changes to the text, this book is perfect on so many levels, even for a three-year-old. It has wonderful illustrations and poetic writing for a children's book ("The world was dust and leaves."). Marz has asked me to read it several times a day for the past week.


    16. The personification through the illustrations add the center moral of this fable and allows children to identify with the concept doubly. Visually through following the story on their own and auditory by listening to it being shared aloud.


    17. I enjoyed the book. I had never heard of this fable before I think that students would love to read this book. This book can easily be used with teaching prediction in the classroom. The illustrations really brought the book to life.


    18. Can gentleness, instead of force, be an effective way to achieve a goal? Great book and again the illustrations were amazing. The sun once again proves he is a powerful force. Nothing beats a warm sunny day.


    19. My favorite fable. The pictures are ok and the rhyming is only sporadic (it's fine- just I'm attached to this moral, so I hoped for a stunner), but the real value is just that there is a new telling that gives you the cance to share this lesson in non-violence with your patrons.


    20. I do like Aesop's Fables and this one is very nicely done with engaging illustrations and easy to read text. This makes a very good read aloud book.




    21. This is another awesome retelling of one of Aesop's fables. Perfect for teaching about fables and traditional literature.


    22. Beautifully written and illustrated story to help us ponder: "Can gentleness, instead of force, be an effective way to achieve a goal?"


    23. I enjoy this fable of winning by gentleness and how that can be a choice and a skill.I have used this for years in my wind story times, though there have been different editions/tellings.
