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 ...
Literature: Fables and Tall Tales
(Frank Schaffer Publications, 1990)
A clever book for the second and third grades. An excellent variety of activities uses nine fables for such tasks as map reading, comparing with Native American folklore, and distinguishing fact from conclusion. 2P has ...
Fables in Verse: From Aesop, La Fontaine, and Others
(A.K. Newman Co./General BooksGeneral Books: www.General-Books.net, 1822)
This is another book printed on demand that can only outrage a booklover. The typesetting and proofreading render the book all but useless. As for typesetting, poetry is regularly rendered as prose here. The T of C is ...
Aesop at College
(Smith and Company, 1911)
Forty fables, as the cover advertises. Though they are of varying quality, some are quite witty. Many, like TMCM and The Sheep in Wolf's Clothing, are played against the traditional grain, as in Ambrose Bierce's work. ...
(Frank Graham Publishers, 1820)

Writing & Rhetoric Book 1: Fable: A Creative Approach to the Classical Progymnasmata: Teacher's Edition
(Classical Academic Press, 2013)
This book amounts to a happy revelation for me. The happy revelation is twofold. First, someone else finds fable a wonderful way to get into reading and writing! In this case, this teacher's handbook is meant for teachers ...
Fabulas: Selección de Autores Célebres
(Ediciones Susaeta S.A., 1979)
Seventy-five fables on some 106 pages with a T of C at the back. The two strongest features of this book might be the wide selection of authors and the pleasant one-to-a-fable colored illustrations. Though not profound, ...
Fábulas para Niños
(Collecion Claridad, 1935)
This hardy paperback has survived for a long time! It has 184 pages, divided into "Fábulas en Prosa" and "Fábulas en Verso." The break, noted in the closing T of C, is not noted in the text. Within that division, fables ...
Fabulous Fables: Using Fables with Children.
(Good Year BooksScott Foresman: Harper Collins, 1991)
A very helpful book for second through fourth grades. The introduction mixes up two important things: the number of lessons and the sequence of parts in the book. There are twelve lessons. There is first an overview ...
