(Ginn and Company Ltd, 1931)
A lovely little book in excellent condition. What a nice approach to stories! Its three fables are labelled, respectively, an Aesop Fable retold, a Hindu Fable, and an Old Story. BC (14) is presented as a drama. The ...
Little Dramas for Primary Grades
(American Book Company, 1913)
Ten or eleven very simple fable plays, including one each from Africa, Japan, and the Orient. FC (40) is hardly longer as a play than as a fable.
Little Plays for Little People
(Ginn and Company, 1910)
Two very simple dramatized fables: TMCM (18) and TH (46). In the former, a boy and a cat set the mice scurrying to a hole. There are great vintage photos of children in the book, but unfortunately none for these two fables.
The Children's Own Readers: Book Three
A pretty standard reader for the times. Its three fables are particularly well told. The first is AL (41) with two illustrations (perhaps to be analyzed by the four colors they use) by Day. The second is The Wise ...
The Child's World: First Reader
A cute little beginning reader with big print and nice pictures. The Rooster and the Grasshopper (50), The Man and the Acorn (51), The Boy and the Fox (53, like MM), TT (81), The Pot and the Kettle (84), ...
Story Hour Readers Revised: Book Three
(American Book Company, 1914)
This book seems to replicate, in fair to poor condition, the 1928 printing which I already have. As I wrote there, it is a standard reader in poor condition. The reader opens with three Aesopic fables--The Monkey and the ...
The Winston Readers: Second Reader
(John C. Winston Company, 1918)
Good several-color illustrations, of which my favorite is TT (17). As often with Richardson's work, the color alignment is sometimes poor. Other fables included are: Fun for the Boys (18), DW (19), and LS (23). Two ...
(Lyons and Carnahan, 1962)
This first-grade reader includes one fable, The Donkey and the Dog (187). This version of the story has some unusual features. A bee talked with the dispirited donkey. Getting into the house was a big part of the donkey's ...
A Spanish Reader
(Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920)
Before the second and third parts of this reader go on to Latin America and to Spanish literature, respectively, its first part presents some easily readible segments, among which are three Aesopic fables: El burro y la ...
Reading with Expression: Third Reader
(American Book Company, 1911)
This copy is almost identical with another book in the collection. The only differences I notice are two. First, this book has a different cover. Where that had a black-and-red design including a pictorial triangle, ...
