" None of my kids have really liked this book. I would give it three stars but that's me. They like a few stories mainly ones they may have already heard and are familiar with. I like that they are short and include a moral at the end of each one. The morals are used for copywork in our school time. " said.

" I love this short stories. I loved to watch series when I was a kid, easy to understand and the way its related with animals makes you see them in other ways when you are a little kid. One of those book you never forget !!! " said.

" I'd always wanted to own a good collection of Aesop's fables. I chose this one because of the really gorgeous artwork that accompanies each fable. The colors the artist uses are wonderful, and create a gentle, old-fashioned effect. The fables themselves are always fun to re-read, and the 'moral of the story' is as pertinent now as it ever was in Aesop's day. " said.

" 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 " said.

" We love Aesop's Fables and enjoy reading various versions for our school time. This is my favorite "spine"--the illustrations are excellent. My children listen to these and often act out of a fable as their narration. Sometimes the "lesson" is not quite aligned with what we think it should be--so we discuss that, too. Our copy is going to fall apart before my son is out of elementary school, because it gets that much daily use! " said.

" ---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. " said.

" Library of Congress Digital Adaptation at http://www.read.gov/aesop/index.htmlStories 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. " said.

"The Cock and the Fox

Moral: The trickster is easily tricked

This fable made a fool out of the trickster fox once again. The fox spots a rooster in a tree, and thinks he found an easy meal by telling it all animals have decided to be friends and forget their differences. The rooster pulls a fast one right back at the fox by yelling out, oh let us invite those dogs that are running this way! The fox is afraid of getting eaten and runs away. The trickster character always seems to assume their plan is fool proof. When they are outsmarted, it teaches a lesson about trustworthiness. In the case of the cock and the fox, the rooster did not believe the fox's lie. Trickster morals are great for young kids to teach them how to think about their choices.
