Fairy Tale (fiction), 837 words, Lexile 620L Level 3 Grades 2-3

A chef, known as the Kobe King, gives each of his three sons a pair of magic chopsticks, which will lead them to the women they will marry. One pair of chopsticks will also lead to a woman with great cooking skills—which would help the chef get the good reputation of his restaurant back. The two older sons are led to lovely women, but the youngest is led to a frog. The chef gives the women, including the frog, cooking tasks. The food the frog prepares is excellent. The youngest son is so happy, he kisses the frog, and she turns into a beautiful woman.
