Talk to me about Aesop's fables


Recommended Posts

There are so many different story collections/treasuries/storybooks floating out there. What is the best one to buy for a K and 1st grade kid to enjoy? Is there one with particularly beautiful illustrations? Is there one recommended by SWB (Susan Wise Bauer)?

We have The Classic Illustrated Aesop's Fables, which has illustrations (and retellings) by many different artists, and suits quite well. I read it out loud to my 6-yo and my toddler, and both are interested (it helps that the fables are short!)


Love this one.


We also have the Jerry Pinkney, which is nice, but after the luxury of illustrations on every page in the Classic Illustrated version, it felt spartan.
