About the Author

Though many modern scholars dispute his existence, Aesop's life was chronicled by first century Greek historians who wrote that Aesop, or Aethiop, was born into Greek slavery in 620 B.C. Freed because of his wit and wisdom, Aesop supposedly traveled throughout Greece and was employed at various times by the governments of Athens and Corinth. Some of Aesop's most recognized fables are The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Ant and the Grasshopper. His simple but effective morals are widely used and illustrated for children.

The Fables of Aesop as retold by Frances Barnes-Murphey is an excellent collection of the original fables. The collection includes 92 separate fables, which includes both colored and black and white illustrations of the text. This collection is very useful; I was able to use it to plan a lesson for my high school English support students. Fables are excellent stories for young children, but they are also useful for older teenagers who need practice analyzing short stories and deciphering the ¿deeper¿ meanings often found in literature. These particular stories are ideal to teach students analysis since the author purposely hid a message in the short narrative. In addition the fables are so short, they are ideal for lesson planning. Many times, English teachers use too much class time covering the reading of the story and are unable to spend time in the analysis. With these fables very little time is used in the reading of the text, and most of the time is dedicated to the analysis and response to literature portion of the lesson. The trick is to allow students to have time to discuss the possible morals of the fable. I need to become comfortable with students grappling with the different possible interpretations; I do not need to give them the ¿correct¿ answer too quickly. I can however use my time to teach them to write rhetorically as they write about literature.Ages: 5 and Up

The language is old and hard to understand and a lot of the charachters don't seem to do what they are meant to.
