This was a cute book with brilliant illustrations. Obviously, it is a collection of fables, so it incorporated animals to teach moral lessons and demonstrate universal truths; however, it did include some that I was not familiar with.

Illustrated by Brad Sneed. Pros: A great collection of Aesop's famous fables. Beautifully illustrated. At the end of each fable, the moral of the story is clearly stated.

Spreading the fable out among several pages would help some of the younger readers/listeners be able to follow the story better.

This book provides many retelling's of Aesop's Fables. These fables include "a moral of the story" which is a great way to discuss it with children at the end. It's an easy introduction to Aesop.

A charming retelling in modern language of 15 of Aesop's tales. Each tale takes just a single page with a single illustration.

A great introduction to these tales for young readers.

This as a lot of stories that have different themes. This stories are ones that I've heard going up in many different ways. The book can be repeatedly throughout the year with a classroom.

this books pictures are very dark. there is a wonderful message at the end of each fable. "Be careful what you wish for" "no act of mercy, however small, is ever wasted"

This is written in contempory language and is such a treat. It is well written and beautifully illustrated.
