|Jack & the Beanstalk|
Life's Best Lessons
Ruby's accepts the call on the advice of the mentor. Then Uncle Fred takes her on short walk through the under the path passageway to a giant beanstalk. He tells her the tale of Jack, how he managed to fend off the giant, and more importantly how he learned from his own mistakes. All that glitters is not gold or rainbow colored beans. Trading a perfectly good milk cow for a bit of magic should never be done in haste. And taking the author's red herring detours are part of the ordeal, but time should be managed wisely. Ruby considers whether she wants to take this last advice or not.
