Marc le magicien

This is a story about a very talented magician who, when the story begins, knows how good he is and is quite self-serving. He meets a poor old man who begs him to use his magic to help him provide shelter from the cold but Marc refuses, saying that he won’t help anyone who cannot help him in return.



    Enhance your kit with the following extras:
    Manigan le géant- Reader

    Manigan is a gentle giant and steward of the Earth who uses his bounty to aid those in need. He helps a couple of people who unfortunately take advantage of his kindness and eat up his stores of food. When the giant becomes weak, the couple realize that they have to give back to the one who has given them so much and they nurture Manigan back to health. This tale, which evokes First Nations wisdom, is a parable that reminds us of the need to treat our world with respect, and not just as something to be viewed as a resource for human consumption.
