Perfect reading material for toddlers. We need to retell stories and fables to the youth. History has a lesson that says we will fail, if we fail to remember the history. These fables or children's stories keep these lessons alive in a way that children do learn the lessons of our predecessors. So, they will not necessarily repeat out same mistakes. It also helps connect parents with their children, teaches children patience and to sit still, which is a much needed skill for pre-school and kindergarden. We want them to be a success in life, so we need to personally spend time and execute that bond from early in their lives if we wish to continue it later in our lives. They are the decision makers whether to put us in a decent nursing home or a group home. Influence them early on.
The first story is The Lion and the Mouse. This is a story that has been popular for many decades. Its about a mouse that helps a lion after he had set him free. This is definitely more one of the more popular Aesop fables and when I was pretty familiar with. The second Aesop fable is The Four Oxen and the Lion. This teaches the lesson of United we stand, divided we fall. The third story in the book is the Aesop fable of The Ant and the Grasshopper. This is also a very well known Aesop fable that teaches about the necessities to prepare for life.
The last Aesop fable of the book is The Frog and the Ox. This story tells about a frog and teaches the lesson about self-conceit may lead to self destruction. This book breaks each fable down into a very short story. Most of the stories range from two to four paragraphs. The only improvement I could see for this book is when I got to the last story in the book the first paragraph and a half was underlined. I am not sure why, but my young reader found it very distracting and difficult to read with it present. Otherwise my kids enjoyed the book.
The writing was simple and easy to understand so a good book for any older child who made be interested in Aesop. Definitely a start since there were only a few stories to wet the whistle while I wouldn't read "The Frog and the Ox" to any real little ones.
