Padma, this traditional story from India depicts three boys who aren't interested in working on the family farm; instead, they spend all their time dreaming of gold. But when their mother suggests that gold is buried in the field, they have a change of heart. Throughout this short story, Padma brings a sly wisdom to the words of the mother, and an excited enthusiasm to the boys as they discover a new kind of riches.
