Literature: Fables, Tall Tales, Myths
(Frank Schaffer Publications, 1990)
A good book for the fourth through the sixth grades. An excellent variety of activities uses six fables for such tasks as relating animal to human behavior, distinguishing fable from other stories, and comparing fable ...
Crónica de Fabulandia: El Caballo y la Hormiga.
(Editorial Fher, 1973)
Apparently, the horse saves the grasshopper, who has been knocked out in a terrible storm. I do not think there is anything Aesopic here. An example of what the root fabu- has meant to people around the world.
La gallina de los huevos de oro y otros cuentos.
(Editorial Ramon Sopena, 1983)
Five fables (two attributed to LaFontaine, one each to Aesop and Samaniego, and one anonymous) with big, well produced art. Samaniego's GGE story includes many eggs and a wife who sides with the animal against her greedy ...
El águila y el escarabajo.
(Editorial Everest, 1988)
Verbatim text of Samaniego followed by sixteen pages of vintage Disney. The eagle becomes a wolf, the dung beetle a duckling, the hare a bird, Jupiter a bear. Generally an excellent match, though the wolf does not devour ...

The Fox and the Crow
(Teacher Created Materials, 2009)
This is a 24-page booklet made apparently for developing fluidity in English through reader's theater. Each volume begins with a resume of the story and two pages of tips on reader's theater by Aaron Shepherd. The six ...
El pájaro Cú/The Cú Bird
(National Textbook Company, 1987)
This story seems to be on the borders of fable. It has an aetiological slant, though it may be hard to feel invited to perceive a lesson. God runs out of feathers, and so one bird has none. Owl and the majority of birds ...
Pérez y Martina/Pérez and Martina
(National Textbook Company, 1988)
This story does not strike me as being a fable in the traditional sense. However, it is a delightful story. Martina is a beautiful ant. Many wooers come beneath her balcony: cat, duck, dog, rooster, frog, bull, pig, and ...
Aesop's Fables Profusely Illustrated
(Goldsmith Publishing Co., 1910)
A lovely little edition. Delightful tellings, with good proverbial morals, and lively black-and-white drawings, some in silhouette (e.g., the bald knight on 173). AI at the beginning. Worth special notice: The Fatal ...
