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.
The Bookshelf for Boys and Girls: II
(Editorial Board of the University Society, 1927)
This book follows upon Volume I of the same year, but seems in cover and format to belong to an earlier generation of the book. Its fable section takes over the section in Volume III of The Home University Bookshelf (1927, ...
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 ...
Les Fables de La Fontaine
(Éditées specialement pour les Magasins du Bon Marché, 1912)
This book reduplicates three editions that I already have listed under 1897, 1901, and 1907. All three of those have a date on their title-page. This volume is without a date there, but there are two suggestions of a ...
A Book of Fables
(Thomas Nelson & Sons Ltd., 1935)
This book is identical with another in the collection except for a few features. Like that book, it uses the plates used in my apparent first edition of Jack Orr's Aesop's Fables, which I have listed under 1927? Please ...
Reinaert in de Andes: vossenvertelsels der Keshwas
Researching this oversized pamphlet has been fascinating. Ernalsteen was writing about the Andes as early as 1947. Might this writing have been an article or a contribution to a symposium or conference? It also exists ...
