    “Aesop’s Fables” illustrated by Charles Santore is a collection of fables intended for the primary age group, ranging from ages five to eight. This collection is the best of Aesop’s animal fables. The tales, in many cases put animals in human rolls and teach a lesson which is described at the end. All of the tales in this book have animal characters and I think that will draw younger readers to it. I like how at the end of each tale, the overall lesson, or concept is put at the bottom. T [...]

    Some are quite humourous and most are familiar in one rendition or another. Many are even redundant, but the substitution of new animals and dialogue make them fun again. People often consider this a children's book, however, it is a lot more useful to adults; the moral lessons and implications on life are often deeper than we might perceive at first glance.

    Kohl's Cares is currently featuring books illustrated by Charles Santore. Beeeyootiful illustrations. I really liked the fables chosen and the way it is summed up with a moral to the story.

    It's beautifully illustrated, and I found some tales I hadn't read before. "The Wolf and the Crane" might be my favorite among the ones that were new to me.

    I liked reading these fables. They teach a lesson each time so children should read these. They are easy to read so they are children appropriate.

    These classic tales have a deep rooted moral story behind them which is great for teaching students about things like being the fastest to finish a task doesn't make them the best

    Aesop's Fables. Charles Santore (1995). Three stories with similar motif.The Tortoise and the Hare – Fable – Trickster tale motifIt is the classic story told time and time again, the race between a fast and boastful hare and a slow and steady tortoise. The boastful hare challenges anybody to a race. A tortoise, feeling confident, accepts the challenge. The hare laughs off the tortoise as a challenge but agrees to the race anyways. As the race begins, the hare takes off quickly leaving the pl [...]

    This collection of folklore is intended for children ages 5-8. Each fable is a paragraph or two long with a moral written at the end of it. The moral is generally one to two sentences long, and all of the morals still make sense in today's world. Each fable is accompanied by an illustration, and the illustrations are bright and vibrant and go well with the fable they are illustrating. I believe that these fables would be very appealing to young readers because they are quick and fun to read. The [...]

    I read the two - this one and the other very similar, but not at the plot level, old book from another old culture - Panchatantra, around the same time, give or take a few years, many decades ago. Both teach lessons of dealing with the world, how people play games, and so forth. Every child should read them. Especially those that need the skills to defend themselves socially, from those that would play various games to cheat or attack or worse. It might help, for some that can grow out of naivet [...]

    Aesop's fables have been told in many different stories and illustrated in many ways, but some would argue that this version collected by Charles Santore is one of the most impressive and most inspirational. The lessons are clearly stated at the end of each fable. Even the fables are easily understood. They are perfect for getting children to understand them. They are written in a dialogue that does not have difficult words to pronounce or words that a child might not understand. The story about [...]

    Charles Santore does a great job providing attention-grabbing artwork to go with these children's stories. The short stories teach lessons about positive and negative character traits such as hypocrisy, kindness, conceit, contentment, and idleness. Each story ends with a moral. For example, The Wolf and the Crane ends with "In serving the wicked, expect no reward, and be thankful if you escape injury for your pains." The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse ends with "Better a little in safety, than [...]

    The art work in this book were really amazing. I enjoyed how the illustrated betrayed the fables. I like that under each story it tells you the moral of the story. That is very helpful because sometimes I could not catch the lesson myself. However, some of the moral I could not think of a way to apply that lesson to real life but there were that it was easy to think of real life situation. It definitely made me think. I feel that this would be great book to read to children. I think a lot of tim [...]

    Wow! What a fantastic set of fables! I thoroughly enjoyed reading these. The illustrations are uniquely beautiful and really add to the life of the fables. What I like best is that each fable had an important life lesson embedded that children, teens, and adults all can learn from. One of my favorite lessons was from "The Bear and the Bees," which was, "It is better to bear a single injury in silence than to bring about a thousand by reacting in anger." These fables are great to teach young chil [...]

    I was familiar with some on the stories told in here, as I'm sure most people are. The illustrations I thought were beautiful. Although some of the stories were entertaining, funny or had some redeeming messages, it wasn't my favorite. Some stories I thought were a little odd or too vague. I don't think I would have liked this book very much as a child. It wouldn't have been able to keep my attention for very long. As a child I liked a whole story as opposed to a book full of little stories. Wit [...]

    This is a beautiful version of Aesop’s Fables. Charles Santore does a magnificent job of bringing the animals to life and capturing the essence of each fable. He truly does an excellent job of expressing the animals’ personalities and human characteristics. Although I do not like all of the fables, and feel that some of them are not promoting the best morals, the gorgeous illustrations make this book worthwhile every time. Even children too young to understand what is meant by “slow and st [...]

    I really enjoyed this book and the way it was set up because there were multiple fables in the story and they were all short so they didn't lose my attention. This is always good for kids who may not like reading because they tend to lose focus really quickly if they aren't interested in what they are reading so this book gives them the chance to read a lot of fables without taking a long time to get to the point. I also loved that they put the moral of the story at the end of each fable because [...]

    This book has many different stories inside of it and all of them have a good moral. Many of them might apply to you. Some of them are "Persuasion is better than force" and "There are two sides to every question." I like this one "Every man carries two bags about with him, one in front and one behind, and both are packed full of faults. The bag in front contains his neighbors' faults, the one behind his own. Hence it is that men do not see their own faults, but never fail to see those of others. [...]

    FABLE - “The Wolf and the Crane” – from Aesop’s FablesA bone gets stuck in a wolf’s throat from eating his prey too greedily. He offers a reward to a crane if she takes it out. She retrieves the bone and requests her compensation. The wolf nastily replies that she should consider herself lucky to have lived through the event. The fable has a valuable lesson to not expect a reward when serving the wicked. The illustrations in this book are highly detailed to emphasize the lessons in eac [...]

    Everything about this book is gorgeous. The art is whimsical and captures the substance of each story. Each of Aesop's fables illustrates an important truth about the human condition and is summed up perfectly with a proverb at the end of each story. For some reason the animals make the story more powerful than if the story were about humans. Probably because humans are seen as being more in-depth and complicated whereas there is a purity to the personality and attributes we give animals. Using [...]

    I loved Aesop's Fables growing up, so was happy to see this beautifully illustrated version. Interestingly enough, the moral of many fables aren't exactly positive but several contemporary references are found in fables (i.e. sour grapes, slow and steady, etc.) that warrant teaching them to children today. The illustrator, Charles Santore writes in his note: "The animals are never more or less than their essential natures, and thus they never disappoint. That is the great essence of each fable." [...]

    This is a book that has timeless classics in it. Aesop's Fables is a collection of childrens stories that have been around for decades. While I enjoyed the stories very much, while reading this version I enjoyed this book purely for the art work. I really noticed the detail that went into all the pictures, and I appreciated the intricacy that the artists gave into their work. I also really enjoyed learning and hearing stories that I had never heard before. I knew or was familiar with a few of th [...]

    Aesop's Fables is a great book to read to young children because the fable's are short, quick, and include a picture to go along with it. The sometimes quirky fables will be enjoyable and relatable to children because of the use of animals in the telling of the fable. The fables are a fun way of teaching simple life lessons to kids, although some of the fables are a little more deep with lessons that are harder to distinguish than others. Overall an excellent and unique book to use for teaching [...]

    Nice illustrations; I enjoy Aesop's fables in general, and this one did not disappoint. Unfortunately the illustrator merely selected a few of his personal favourite fables to include in this collection, so it is hardly a complete set. I look forward to reading this one to my children one day and letting them stare at the images in order to synthesize what has happened in the stories with what they see in the drawings. It was fun remembering some of these fables from Jean de la Fontaine's "Fable [...]

    Aesop's Fables is a fairly short book. It can be read in it's entirety within half an hour (maybe less). It should be read slowly, and one should ponder on the statements made per story. I personally enjoy these stories everytime I read them, and its simplicity makes it so accessible to any reader. Charles Santore is a great illustrator, and I especially enjoy his illustration on the last page. If you should ever choose to buy Aesop's Fables, I recommend this edition.

    The entire book was filled with fables that i have been told my whole life. some though i have never heard of, one of these was "The wolf in the sheep's clothing" i really like this one, i think manly for the lesson that is learned in it. harm seek, harm find. this is displayed all the time but not always is it as extreme as is shown in this fable. one more thing that i loved in this book was the illustrations, i thought they were beautiful! I enjoyed reading this book very much.

    The art for this book is amazing. I really enjoy having this book around and it is fun to read to my son as a bedtime story. The artist does a great job of creating pictures that bring the stories to life. A lot of the time I found myself just checking out the art instead of the stories. It is nice to have a copy of fables around to use as reference material and the artwork is definitely a bonus.

    This was a pretty quick read for me. And I liked it, although not as much as I had predicted I would. Most of the tales seemed kind of repetitive by the end, though there were some really cute stories mixed all in with some really good morals. Not my favorite book, but I'd still recommend it for some light reading.

    I loved how the animals all looked so human and full of emotion in each illustration. The author said in the introduction that this was his goal, and I felt that he achieved that goal very realistically. I love these tales and their morals still hold true today. Kids can still learn lessons from the faults and virtues of the animals in these fables.
