Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Samantha | 2/10/2014

    " A collection of fables with fortune cookie-like words of wisdom at the end of each story. A full color, full page illustration mirrors each page of text. Animals are cast as the main characters in each fable making the stories that much more relatable. All of the fables have good morals and worthy bits of wisodm, but my favorite tale was the last one about the mouse who journeys to see the ocean and arrives bloodied and bruised but witnesses a sunset that verges on sheer perfection. Great read, even a great read aloud in small doses so each message can be savored. Must read/see! "

    " A fun collection of original fables with a moral to go with them. They would be great for older children, and each fable is just one page long. It would be great to use to introduce a writing unit. "

    " 1981 Award winner. Colored pencil and watercolor. Great collection of short fables with the moral of the story at the end of each. Rec for P-4. Adults and teens will like these too. Fans of Arnold Lobel will not be disappointed. "
