The illustrated children's story I chose is one available on the Web for free at URL: http://www.magickeys.com/books/patrick/index.html.

This is a story about Patrick, who rescues an elf from his cat. The elf grants him a wish. Patrick, who hates homework, wishes for the elf to do his homework for the next 35 days, until school is out for the summer. The elf agrees, but there is one catch - the elf does not understand human stuff, so he asks Patrick to help him and show him how - in every subject. So Patrick ends up doing his homework himself, and passing the term with high marks thanks to that crafty little elf.

The grade level for this story, told in rhyme, is first grade all the way up to fifth grade. Any elementary school-aged child can benefit from this story and activity. What children will do is create their very own homework elf, to "help" them get their homework done.
