You can introduce a favorite child who is between the ages of four and eight to the wonders of Aesop's Fables. Twelve of these short stories with their life lessons are included. We all remember "The Hare and The Tortoise" and the moral of that story, but we can also learn from "The Mouse and The Cat" and "The Tortoise and The Eagle". The attractive illustrations dress up these classic tales. There are little bits of information about the ancient times of the author's life. They are sprinkled though out the book that adds to the interest.
Aesop gave us these stories in the sixth century. He lived in ancient Greece. The retelling of these tales is well done can be enjoyed by most ages, but especially the very small.
