Two Fables of Aesop

Two Fables of Aesop

by Martha Hamilton, Bruce MacDonald (Illustrator), Mitch Weiss

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is one of a series of very short picture books in the "Books for Young Learners" collection of Richard C. Owen Publishers. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the teaching guide Children Tell Stories by the same authors, who are professional story-tellers. It consists of a very simple rendering of two of the most popular of Aesop's Fables, the Fox and the Crow (called The Singing Crow in this volume) and the Fox and the Goat, complete with accompanying morals at the end of each. The illustrations are lively and highly traditional in style, heavily crosshatched pen-and-ink with watercolor washes. A note on the back cover exhorts youngsters to try telling the stories themselves, in their own words, with suggestions for enlivening the storytelling with dramatic expression. While the stories are clearly and vividly written, it is difficult to determine why this particular volume would be necessary in a classroom, as there are so many similar versions of these two fables already available in libraries. 2006, Richard C. Owen Publishers, Ages 5 to 9.
