Informative Book .

Love to listen these with my daughter. She is dyslexic and the more listening she hears and attempts helps her so much.

Excellent Listen.

The lessons it teaches in the book are wonderful, useful teachings for all of us. Also this is a wonderful resource for introducing mindfulness to children. Great for giving children different tools on how to relax and enter into a prayerful state.

My Son loved this!

This was my son's first audible and he loved it. Some of the classics he had read in school and was familiar with, but the additional stories was a treat for both of us!

Well Said.

The illustrations alone are worth it, with that said, if you want more fables (there are only 20 in this one), go for the one by "Edward J. Detmold". They are both needed for your collection!

Highly Recommend .

One of the best books ever written. My 5th grade math teacher would start our class every morning with a story from this book and it's perfect for kids. I love this book and recommend it highly to the newer generation as it has the most adventurous stories especially when you have a theatrical person to listen it to you. Thanks Mrs. Ruth Wallace, I will never forget how you made the class exciting with the entrance everyday.

Valuable Book.

Aesop's Fables were written to convey a message. Sometimes they offer wisdom, and sometimes they poke fun at conventional wisdom. It illustrates a lot of the thinking and the old ways of doing things and dealing with the world going back into the Pre-Christian times when things were looked at quite differently than they are today. The book is fun to read because each little story only takes a few minutes to read and the plot changes so quickly from story to story that it is easy to simply relax and let the book carry you along without having to deal with any heavy plots or deep concentration. It is also very interesting to find out where so many of our old cliches and sayings originated from. Much of the material would be worth reading to children, and would be a great exercise to teach them to look for deep, and sometimes hidden, meaning.

As an adult, I find the book to be both interesting and entertaining, so I give it five stars.

Lovely Audio Book.

The book itself has the familiar Aesop's Fables that many of us grew up hearing in one form or another BUT the pictures that go along with the stories are simply amazing and capture the story images very vividly. Children (and adults) will enjoy this book.

Very Interesting Book .

Magnificent lesson, pitiful, genuine, life confirming and regularly clever. Tuning in this book is like putting glasses on for the primary time. Everything comes into full see. Point of view changes quickly.

Beautiful Book

Very cute! There are some great stories, each several pages long, so short but still long enough to get little imaginations flowing and hopefully send them off to dreamland ready for a midnight adventure. All the tales are just adorable.

Amazing Audio Book

I was so sceptical, but I thought it sounded cute and I really wanted to give it a try. I bought this book yesterday and tonight my 4 year old decided he wasn't having any part of going to bed. He wanted to watch his favourite cartoon. So I asked him if we could lay down and listen to a good audio book for bed. (I often listen while driving or cleaning so he knows what they are). I put the book on my phone and hit play. it worked!

An excellent collection

Listen this audiobook to my son for bedtime and he loved it. He is a great lover of fables and fairy tales even as a toddler and finding new and unique stories for him is always a good thing.

I highly recommend it.

Too much direct in any case it gives us a fantastic appreciation. This book makes me fundamentally make a few information assessments effectively.
