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.
yes, and i bought my son a little book of them when he was six.
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.
I am a big fan of aesop fables. Here is the link if anyone would like to read it online.
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.
Wonderful morals and easily understood. My favourite is 'The Hare and the Tortoise'. Guess which one I am?...(Clue: NOT the hare)
I read Aesop as a child and from there I started reading mythologies. I have not stopped since.

Old Aesop's Fables cartoon?I remember checking out a bunch of Aesop's Fables cartoons on VHS from my local library years ago. The cartoon quality resembles a lot of Aesop's Fables 1983, but it wasn't a full movie, rather it came in volumes, each containing 3 or so short episodes on the famous...

Do you still view life with the wonder of a child?For me, whenever I am around young children, especially my grands, am I reminded through their eyes just how wonderful everything about this life is, even the smallest of things. I think it is wonderful to capture back or keep that wonderment about...
