In this book there are many tales that are retold by Ann McGovern. They are used to teach morals, especially to children. Some fables that are in the book are, ¿The Fox and the Grapes¿, ¿The Shepherd Boy and the Wolf¿, and ¿The Goose with the Golden Eggs.¿ The morals that are portrayed in these fables have very good lessons that teach kids what not to do in the future while they are growing up. I would recommend this book to a friend and to young readers (children).
