I decided to pick up Aesop's Fables and give it a go. I honestly thought that I was picking up a book of fairy tales, but was pleasantly surprised by the short quick and familiar tales that were in this book.
Description: So many stories that we consider modern have their roots in Aesop's fables. They truly are timeless. This is a collection of tales that is appropriate for any age, the lessons that they teach are simple and useful in everyday life.
What I liked: I recognized a lot of the tales, some I had heard or seen in children's picture books, others in movies, tv shows, cartoons, etc. I had no idea that the stories were written such a long time ago.
What I didn't like: It was hard to read this in one sitting. Because the stories are so short, I found myself either constantly re-reading entire tales or falling asleep after I had read a few of them.
Would I recommend this?: Absolutely. I think that every person should spend some time with this book at least once.
