Adapted from Aesop's Fables. This rather thick 8½ x 11 paperbound book is the teacher's guide. I do not yet have the book itself. The book presents twelve fables, all with multiple mimeograph master-pages. Ah, the joy of purple pages! There is plenty of purple seep-through here. There are illustrations on each of the hand-outs to be reproduced. Each fable is presented in dialogue form. As McCann's introduction indicates, the book presents a number of items for each fable: a text, a story capsule and moral, a list of characters with the appropriate reading level for each character, and comprehension questions for discussion. There are voice directions as well as illustrations with each fable. The indications of reading level point out the important vocabulary for that reader. This book takes me back to a time when the teacher who produced the most purple pages was technologically the most advanced.
