Here is an extra copy of this book. This 8½ x 11 book has a busy cover. It identifies Grades 1 through 3 as the target; proclaims Fables are natural links for building character education; and shows a variety of characters, including wolf, dog, mouse, frog doctor, and butterfly. Near its bottom the cover has this text: Includes peer reading; humorous and repetitive dialogue; all fables written at a 0.5 to 2.0 grade level; phonological awareness; activities that connect the fables with math, art, science, and social studies. Phew! Each of the fourteen fables has a section before and after it. The section before is the Teacher's Page with various activities to do before and after reading the story. After each fable come questions to help students' reading and understanding. The titles are helpful and show a good contemporary pointing of the fable. Thus the first three are titled Baby Mouse Sees the World, The Donkey Changes Jobs, and A Well of Trouble. This book represents a fine selection of fables for children in the early grades. Well done!
