Publisher's Summary

Aesop's Fables are stories based on allegories and caricatures featuring mostly animals. These stories got the collective name Aesop’s Fables from the person who collected the stories. Aesop, popularly believed to have been a Phrygian slave, collected his fables sometime around the sixth century BC. Whatever his real story may be, the fables he collected feature valuable lessons.

This audiobook contains six famous fables by Aesop as given below:

  • The Boy Who Cried Wolf
  • The Ant and the Grasshopper
  • The Fox and the Crow
  • The Fox and the Grapes
  • The Hare and the Tortoise
  • The Honest Woodcutter

Additionally, you’ll get Little Red Riding Hood, the classic fairy tale. Isn’t that great?

Like classic fairy tales, fables are a great source of bedtime stories for kids. While classic fairy tales were written with small children in mind, fables were written to educate children of all ages.

Containing retelling of six of Aesop’s adopted fables, this audiobook will be the ideal gift for your kids.

We hope you enjoyed the audiobook preview. Get the full audiobook now!

Best lessons!

I thought fables are old-fashioned and demanding. But my 5 year old insisted on checking this out. The short stories stayed with her and I'm beginning to appreciate this. I'm glad i gave this a chance.

Annoying narrator

I honestly couldn’t listen to this with my 4yo. Worst narrator I’ve heard. I don’t recommend this book

Six Aesop Fables stories in one book

Aesop’s fables are not just bedtime stories for kids. Each of the fables has its own lessons for everyone. I played this loud, so our whole family could listen. Not only our kids, everyone enjoyed it.

It's impressive.

Before I let my children listen to this, i tried it first and was impressed. Its a nice collection that children will be able to relate with because of the animal characters. What better way to begin our new year than to listen to moral lessons that will guide us starting our 2019 right.

So fascinating! A book for children to love.

These classic fairy tales are awesome.

There are few adverts about Nayomi’s other books in between each short story. Little annoying, but I get to know about her other books. All of them looks good. I’m going try them this weekend. Thanks Nayomi for writing awesome story books.

Good stories, ok performance spoiled by adverts

Good stories with sensible morals but the performance is stilted and there are very annoying adverts for other books inserted between the stories. hardly ideal for getting kids to sleep. Very disappointed.

Tales to live by.

Kids nowadays almost can’t be tamed. Good thing I saw this in audible while I was in search for a good story book. This is a smart and convenient way to teach them without reprimanding endlessly on difficult topics that the whole idea falls out for a child. I will definitely check out other Nayomi’s works!

Brilliant audio book.

An awesome gift for my five-year old son. The classic fairy tales will surely instill important values and morals to him. And because I’m very satisfied with what I’ve heard, I’ll make a purchase of the ebook version, too.

the author nailed it!

It’s a collection of highly entertaining stories suitable for early readers. As expected, my kids love it! Each story is pretty short and we even finish it in one sitting. This is highly recommended!

Old Fairy Tales for modern day kids.

Kids are destroyed by TV and video games. Audiobooks are great way to boost their creativity.

All books in this collection are impressive.

This took me to my childhood days. Fables are little modified from the originals what I hear during my time. Anyway, all 6 of them are very good. Not only our kids, my parents enjoyed it.

Valuable life lessons here.

There's something about encouraging kids to listen to fables. It's the key to raising them to be good ones. After finishing this audio book with my niece, i realized there's much more to the world of fables than i thought i knew.
