One of the books I remember fondly when I was a child Aesop’s Fables, The lessons I’ve learned from these popular stories have stayed with me all my life, and I’ve often shared them with my children over the years. That’s why I was so excited to get this new product Aesop’s FablesThis beautiful hardback contains eight retellings from Aesop’s famous warnings.
Your children will be fascinated to hear the stories, including The Hare and the Turtle, The Boy Who Cried the Wolf and The Donkey in the Lion’s Fur. The stories retold by Elli Woollard contain charming rhyming verses and the colorful illustrations by Marta Altes promise to arouse your imagination.
A fable is a short story that teaches children a lesson or morality. For example, The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing emphasizes that appearances are often deceptive, and The Hare and the Tortoise reminds us that the race is slowly and steadily winning. It is believed that Aesop’s fables first appeared in the fifth century BC. BC, but they are as current today as they were then and I am very happy to be able to share this classic book with my children and add it to our collection.
