I found this for free for my kindle, I has these stories when I was young and loved them. And they were just as great today for my 2 and 4 yr old sons. These are like Aesops fables where the fox is in each story and learns a lesson in each short story. The crow and the cheese, the fox and the grapes etc... there were even some new ones I had not read before. They held my sons attention while waiting for his Dr appt, and even made him laugh out loud. Highly recommend

The download does not contain the entire book. Formatting does not come out right on the Kindle Fire. I realize many of the these ebooks are very inexpensive or free, but if the creators are not going to put in the effort to do something right, they shouldn't even publish it at all. It's just a waste of everyone's time.

Aesops Fables are absolutely meant for children and I would be horrified to find out that someone would dumb them down. The morals are excellent and are worth the time to explain to a young child. We start teaching Aesops to our children at the ripe old age of 6 and they have understood them when they were done. Completely worth the time spent reading and explaining!

This free kindle book contains four important Aesop fables that children should know because they teach children how to behave and how to be successful. The stories are decorated with pictures. One tale teaches children to avoid flattery, a behavior children frequently adopt because it makes them feel good. Another warns them not to trust someone who is looking out for their own interest. The third shows them the psychological truth that people despise what they cannot get - an attitude they should not develop because they should learn to persevere. The fourth teaches the lesson of quality being more important than quantity.

These are 4 Aesop fables for children. The illustrations are cute and appealing enough. I do like these charming illustrations. However, the morals of the stories are not geared towards children. They are rather obtuse and not effective to teach anything to young kids.

Apparently, there are educational apps for this publisher. Frankly, I do not see anything very educational for children in this book. The fables are really geared toward adults. Hopefully, there will be something educational for children in the other books they publish.

I gave this 3 stars, because the illustrations are intriguing.

Aesop's Fables is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC. Several hundred fables have been credited to him, with each fable consisting of a brief story, followed by a moral to the story. Most of the characters in Aesop's fables were animals that take on some human qualities such as speech but retain their basic animal characteristics like size and speed.

This little volume includes four of the fables with a fox as the main character. In "The Fox and the Crow," we learn that flattery may indeed get you everywhere, or at least a bite to eat. "The Fox and the Goat" is probably the origin of the caution "Look before you leap." "The Fox and the Grapes" shows that we often despise what we cannot have, leading to the expression "sour grapes." The last story, "The Fox and the Cat," has been interpreted several ways, but I think the moral of the story can be summed up as "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."

This is a great introduction to Aesop's fables for kids. The stories and the lessons learned are simple enough for even younger kids to understand, and there's some real wisdom behind the stories.

The audience here is extremely narrow: an older kid who can understand the advanced vocabulary, is mature enough not to freak out at the tragedies/deceit, and who will be satisfied with 1-page stories with character development you might find in books written for four-year olds. Free but feels like an incomplete first draft. My four-year-old was non-plussed, even when I changed all the vocabulary on the fly to words he would understand, and added explanations of the general morals.
