    Read and learn from this fantastic book!

    Although I am still very young - 10 years old - since I was a little child my parents would read for me. Now I read by myself, for them and with them! In a very special way, my Dad, who is a medical doctor, has always encouraged me to learn as much as I could. This was one of the best advices he gave me! It is unbelievable how much one can learn from all the fables in this book! They will teach you and open your eyes, heart, mind and soul...

    Ravenfeather

    Ravenfeather stands up and laughs. "BloodClan will pay for what they have done! While the four kts who will destroy BloodClan, or attempt to, are growing, I shall raise a Clan of fighters. One that has no weakness!." He meows before padding out.

    Invaluable wisdom for children lost in today's society

    I am surprised this book made it into the sales bin it should be on a best seller¿s list. This book does what most books and T.V does not. It is short and to the point, yet it teaches children life lessons. It also opens up conversation, so please read it early and make time for a question and answer period right after. This is especially important as it seems that our children are being preyed on at an alarming rate.

    Classic folk tales that carry with it more than just a story...

    I loved them when I was little and still enjoy reading them from time to time... These are stories that have been around for generations. They were told as bed time stories, told to children who got into trouble, or just told for fun around a camp fire. So whats my point? Some stories featured in this book or similarities close to them, have been told to young children for over a century as entertianment, but more so for teaching morality and good judgement. These are classical folklores at some of their bests. Simple, but enjoyable for anyone of any age.

    Fables

    I think this book looks good, but not great. I would like to read it, but it doesn't look good enough to pay money. I'd rather look for it at the library nearest to me.(It is a free library.)
