The Aesop for Children
1. The illustrations are fantastic. Almost every fable has a picture be it small or large enough to fill the page.
2. Excellent retelling of the fables. Not dumbed down in any way. The language is fairly challenging, but my 5 and 6 year olds understood it without difficulty.

Stories from The Aesop for Children is a delightful, albeit simple digital version of a physical book. Many of the detailed illustrations originally drawn by Milo Winter are made interactive in this version; frogs croak, "The Frogs and the Ox,"cats creep, "Belling the Cat,"and birds chirp, "The Fox and the Grapes." Compared with contemporary digital books, this book's interactivity seems limited.
One of those book you never forget !!!
Written by Milo Winter and Aesop, illustrated by Milo Winter, published by Children's Press, 1985.
Summary: A collection of 112 classic moral stories originally written or told by Aesop.
Response: It's great to have all of these stories in one place and the illustrations are help tell the story for young readers. Some of the language may be difficult for students to understand and would require some explanation.
Possible Units: Character Education
I also now have a jacket-less hardcover that is beautiful from Dalmation Press. When I search the ISBN it comes up with a Mother Goose, so that is odd. I guess they reused it? This version that I have added has a fairy, a rose and some other animals on top, but it is also illustrated by Milo Winter. I'll try to remember to take a photo to upload, as I couldn't find one online when I searched.
Newly added App from LOC with interactive features.
Reflection: This book is great for the imagination. It gets children thinking about why things happen and how we can learn from experiences.
Fables, animals, fantasy, morals
Let's just say that if I could I would rate it with 10 stars ;)
