Favorite Fables in Our Lives: Aesop's Fables and Original Application Stories
(Dormac Inc.,, 1989)
This paperback book of some 98 pages builds off of a 1982 effort by the same authors, Fables by Aesop. That was a large-format (8½ x 11) classroom book of 65 pages that matched each of ten Aesopic fables with an application ...
(Grosset & Dunlap, 1982)
T of C. No index. No illustrations. No translator. The ultimate gem in cheap and massive Aesop! This book might be helpful for offering a variety or a specific formulation of morals.
Fables By Aesop
This is a large-format (8½ x 11) classroom book of 65 pages. It aims at providing students with the opportunity of sharing in the cultural heritage that Aesop's fables have provided us but without the barriers of complicated ...
City Mouse--Country Mouse and Two More Mouse Tales from Aesop.

Here a hunter (a Black African) gets the monkey king. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. The righthand pages are full illustrations, while those on the left present text with one telling symbol. The English ...
A Donkey in Lion's Disguise/A Wolf and a Lamb/The Bear and the Travelers
The raccoon discovers the lion-clad donkey. The lamb needs time to digest. The moral works from the lamb, not the wolf: this was a bad choice. One traveler is so fat that he cannot climb the tree. Good lively cartoon ...
(The Franklin Library, 1982)
A pretty but, I would say, misguided book. The thirty or so engravings from Grandville are very well presented. The putting together of Grandville, who illustrated LaFontaine, with two translators of Aesop has its problems. ...

This is a book or reproducible pages for teachers to use with primary classes. Each of seven fables is given six or seven pages. The pages regularly include cut-outs for faces. The booklet's suggestion is that the teacher ...
