    Did anyone read Aesop's fables as children?  Did you learn any moral lessons from the fables?  If you have children have they been exposed to Aesop?

      Aesop's Fables is a full of nice stories.

      Any child of five and above must be told these stories.

      If available on the net, the children can be exposed to these stories.

      The parents can tell these stories one by one and they can indirectly introduce the morals by asking questions.

      This is good topic.
      wish you all the best
      .Have anice day.

      I read the fables as a child and surprisingly I feel it contributed to shaping my perception of moral values similar to parables of the Bible which I was not exposed to as a child. Which ever format of teaching moral life lessons to your child you choose, be it religious or fables I am in agreement that it is a good idea.

      Aseops fables and biblical parables have shaped are vocabulary of describing human behaviour by comparing it to certain animals. If someone is called a snake or a fox we would make the assumption that this person is evil or sly. This is because these animals have been used in famous stories and be demonised to a degree, like the snake who tempted Eve or the cunning fox in "The fox and the crow".

      As a teacher of English language I used the Aesop's story: The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse, in teaching English language as a second language to pre-schoolers (aged 4-6). It was very useful and fun for kids. I had my own version for the story (there are many versions of his stories although the originals are better). I have two hubs on this topic.

      I enjoyed reading Aesop with my children.  Was there a reason?

    I never knew my Daughter till last year. By then she was 17 and having my grandchild. Her mother had took off when she was a month pregnant.

    So... it is not that I would, not have.

    I was just not given the opportunity.

    yes, yes, yes.  But, I rather find them a little dark as I am rereading them now.  But I loved them as a child.  Absolutely loved them.

    Of course. Aesop was amazing...I wrote a paper about his stuff before. I sometimes look at my Aesop picture book. Has morals are practical yet its amazing how affective he makes them with his fables. smile

    I read Aesop as a child and from there I started reading mythologies.  I have not stopped since.
