Once upon a time there was a girl named Jackie, who lived with her mother in a big house.
Well... not that big.
In fact, Jackie and her mother were very poor, and everything they had was little. They had little money, little food, and a little house. Their largest possession was a cow, that provided little milk.
One day, Jackie's mother sent her to the market to sell the family cow. But on her way, Jackie met a strange man, who showed her a handful of magic beans. The beans were more valuable than any amount of money, he explained, because if planted, they would transform into a giant beanstalk. Jackie, enchanted, traded her cow for the mysterious beans. But when she returned home with only a handful of beans, her mother was furious. She grabbed them out of Jackie's little hand, threw them out of the little window, and sent Jackie to bed, without the little dinner that there was.
Jackie fell asleep, feeling guilty and ashamed that she did not follow her mother’s orders to just sell the cow for money.
But the next morning...
...and higher still.
Jackie woke up and saw a giant green beanstalk outside her bedroom window. Without her mother knowing, she jumped out and onto the beanstalk, and started to climb.
She climbed higher...
When she finally reached the top, she discovered a long road leading to a little house in the distance.
But as Jackie approached the house, she realized that it was not little at all: it was giant. It had a giant door with a giant doorknob, and was surrounded by giant trees. Jackie, so accustomed to little things, felt littler than ever. Jackie ventured inside, and came upon a stack of gold coins, a golden harp, and a goose that laid golden eggs. Jackie seized each one, hoping to show these newfound riches to her mother. But suddenly, a giant roar from a giant voice filled the giant house.
The giant voice belonged to a giant. Jackie, terrified, bolted for the door. But the giant called out:
"WAIT, please don't run away. Why are you stealing my things?"
Jackie stopped in her tracks, and replied, "I'm sorry sir. My mother and I are poor and hungry, and we have nothing left."
"All you had to do was ask, little girl. I wouldn't mind sharing. I have plenty of gold, but no friends."
Jackie had made a friend. The giant gathered the golden treasures, helped her out of the house, and they both climbed down the beanstalk, returning to Jackie's little world. At first, Jackie's mother was terrified of the giant, but she changed her mind after seeing the giant treasures he brought with him.
Jackie and her mother had found riches, and the giant had found a new family. And they all lived happily ever after.
