I bought this for my daughter who is 3. She's a bit young to understand the moral lesson of the fables, however this is a nice book to have in a child's library. I have been enjoying reading the fables which I hadn't read since I was a child, as now I am better able to appreciate the morals.

This is a nice hardcover book with thick pages. It contains 20 of the well-known fables I learned and read as a child.They have been updated with more of a modern twist, but they are still wonderful. The illustrations in the book are spectacular. The words are not too small and not too large. At the bottom below each of the fable is the moral that the child should be learning from reading the passage. The majority of the fables are one page of writing. There are a few that have two pages. It is easy to read for young children.
There is also a CD with the Aesop's Fable book is a great resource to go along with the book. It does resource the book and advise what page the story can be found in the book.
I purchased this book for use in homeschool with a second and fourth grader. It worked great. It would also be suitable for smaller children.
This handsome 1999 edition, The Classic Treasury of Aesop's Fables beautifully illustrated by Don Daily [ 1940- 2002 A.D. ] sets out Aesop's best loved stories and their moral message to delight and inform children of all ages.
A great book that belongs on any child's bookshelf!
SUGGESTIONS: For the perfect children's literature additions, find a used copy of Udo Weigelt's "The Sandman" (it is sadly out of print), and also get Mary Engelbreit's "Mother Goose". Both of those books are just lovely, absolute musts!

Great illustrations! Has a nice "moral" phrase at the end of each fable.Read more
