DLTK's Educational Activities:  Aesop's Fables
The Plane Tree

Moral:  The best blessings are often the least appreciated.

Note:  the "Plane" tree is not a spelling mistake (my husband asked if I'd made an error -- if it should be plain instead -- nope, it really should be plane).

A plane tree is a European tree.  Napoleon had a lot of them planted along the canals in southern France to prevent the water from evaporating as the canals were important shipping routes at the time.  In North America they're known as Sycamore trees.
