Aesop Fables


It is believed that Aesop was once upon a time a slave who entertained people with his Fables. Fables are short stories that teach a moral, or lesson, to children. The stories are often funny, and the themes are easy for children to understand. The characters of fables are usually animals who act and talk like people but still have animal traits. The fables tell a story and end with a moral or lesson.
