Nanabosho, unable to reach the cranberries growing pretty high up, tries in vain to pick their reflection in a lake.

 

 

When Nokomis comes to Winona’s class, she notices that the students are learning about reflections. So she tells the story about how the hungry Nanabosho, unable to reach the cranberries growing pretty high up, tries and tries and tries to get the ones in the water. Of course, Nanabosho, as a naïve child who teaches good behavior by behaving badly, learns the hard way that it probably isn't wise to try to get cranberries off a bush by grabbing at their reflection in a lake.
