The CD is an excellent addition to this book! While the book contains over 100 stories the CD covers 42 of the best of them and references the title of each story and the page it can be found in the book.

For parents who would like to convert the disc to MP3 files and add the story/track information here is a list of are all the stories on the CD. If you use J. River Media Center the track information has also been uploaded to their servers so it should automatically add it when you rip/convert the CD to MP3 files.

I love reading this book to my children. The stories have rich language, yet they're short enough that even young children don't get lost. My 6 and 5 year olds read two of these fables each week for school, and they're learning a lot.

I grew up with a few of Aesop's fables and their wise stories have remained embedded in my memory from which I draw on to make judgments on everyday situations in my life. This book contains a wider collection of such stories which should prove most useful for both children and adults. Apart from the book of "PROVERBS" in the bible, Aesop's Fables give a clear illustration of particular situations which occur in everyday life and has a greater tendency to remain fixated in your memory. This book is a literary treasure.

Ok, I almost didn't buy this because of the "ass" comment, which I did appreciate. I'm a conservative homeschooler and didn't really want my 3, 4, 5, and 7 year olds talking about the "ass."

But I was attracted by the price and CD, and I'm really happy with the product. IMHO everything for little kids ought to be on CD because they learn so well from them. And the CD has most of the famous fables on it (about a third of them from the book, which has over 100).

I would have given it five stars if the print/layout had been just a little bit more kid-friendly... the pages have the old school font and layout like from the 50s, with double columns and typewriter (close set) font. But it is still a lovely book, old fashioned, true to the originals. After debating about this version versus the others, I'm happy with it. We used it with Evan-Moor Lit Pockets (Fables), and it had all 8 stories suggested.

Good book. My son enjoys listening to the CD and "reading" himself. I appreciate the morals at the end of each story.

Beautiful artwork, great lessons. Aesop's fables are often fun stories with great lessons for children (and adults). Kids don't get tired of reading these fables again and again.

The stories are concise, clear and educational. the CD allows easy listening even when driving.

I initially bought one for my two sons who are 8 and 2 years old. I thought the lessons profound life lessons for adults as well as kids and further purchased one each for both my nephews and my niece.
