About the Author

As a terrible two child growing up and having to learn the lessons of life the hard way, comes the stories of Fibles. The Fibles series is written for the purpose of being a quick-read, because as a child I had a short attention time span, and today as an adult I live in the world of “There’s not enough time!"

I went on to survive the terrible two era and graduated from Arizona State University school of business, becoming a marketing director, web designer, and author.

I would like to dedicate the Fibles series to all those who unfortunately volunteered, or were coaxed into having to babysit me. I hope everyone enjoys reading the Fibles series of books aloud, and by all means have alot of fun!

Great Lessons and Fun to Read Fibles : Children’s eBook by author M.R. Everette rates right up there as one of the best children’s book I have read in some time. I like the fact that the stories teach valuable lessons, and ones I know my grandchildren will deal with at some point in their life. The book contains 12 stories that are quick and fun to read, illustrations which have the names of the main characters on them, which really helps my grandchildren identify with them as the stories unfold. With limited time in our lives, Fibles is a book that is spot on in terms of time and quality. Fibles reminds me of Aesop’s Fables, but trying to explain to four and five year olds who Zeus is, or for that matter Greek mythology, makes storytelling more difficult. I prefer the more modern approach to things they can relate to in today’s world and would recommend this book to other grandparents and parents.

Fibles was a terrific surprise! It’s a dozen super quick (about ten minutes each) bedtime stories and wonderful illustrations for young children. What is wonderful about this collection is the fact that the topics apply to modern families and kids (for example, using “iPaws” and birds who are “tweeting”), so they are highly relatable, even to very young children. In addition, each story teaches a good lesson, in an entertaining way. Each story has a firm, interesting plot that describes familiar, real-life situations that triggers the child to react and apply common sense when considering a solution. Some of the topics include the importance of waking up early, learning responsibility when it comes to doing chores before having fun, and not believing everything you hear.  The characters include adorable, quirky animals like Eriee the Bird, Fraidy the Cat, and my favorite, Wisee the Owl. Nicely done and relaxing for a bedtime read.

This is a nice collection of adventure stories written for children. Each story has a plot where the character learns a lesson, which in turn is teaching the child a lesson also. The characters in the stories have quirky names like Fraidy the cat, Erlee the bird, and so on. I thought the various illustrations were spot on. As an adult, I would love to read these to my grandchildren as bedtime stories. I know they would love them. I could see these stories becoming a beloved series of television cartoons.

Relative to Today While the ancient fables, fictions that point to the truth, of the storyteller Aesop are a classic they are not always relatable for today's youth. M.R.Everettes Fibles are useful to life for the world that faces today's modern child and family. This book contains 12 quick and poignant stories to teach important lessons that every child needs and should learn in a fun and entertaining way. My favorite of the fables from Fible is The Guppible One that tells of the repercussions of playing hooky, getting something for free, and making a bad choice. With our time so limited what we choose to read to our children is important. If you can find 10 minutes in our day to read to a child I would recommend you make it a story from M.R.Everettes Fibles.

M.R. Everette's, "Fibles: 10-Minute Children's Bedtime Stories for Modern-Day Kids" is the perfect name for this book. It has a dozen stories that are all short in length (you can read one in 10 minutes easy) but they are not short on entertainment. With cute names like Wisee the wise owl, McKoo the cuckoo bird, and Ty the firefly the characters are easy for the kids to remember and each story teaches a lesson and gives the perfect opportunity for you to discuss how doing things like doing your chores, don't play hooky, don't judge a person by their size is important. My personal favorite is "The Guppible One" which is about Gillmore the guppy who skips swimming school to nibble at the free lunch that the fishermen dangle from their lines for excitement. Turns out poor Gillmore got more excitement than he could stand, in fact, says it was the worse day of his life. When he went to school the following day he finds out that he missed a fantastic field trip to the aquarium sea show where they all got a free lunch from all the people at the aquarium and turns out to have been the best day of their lives. I (and my grandchildren, ages 4 and 6) really enjoyed the book. I especially liked the opportunity it gives me to teach them valuable lessons that will make them responsible, friendly and trustworthy among other things and have faith others will too.
