Aesop's Fables, Part II

The nature of man and animal
A trip to the library revealed several books titled Aesop's Fables
We read several new editions of 
Aesop's Fables.  Some featured the same stories
and some had different versions.

This is one of my 1964 editions of Aesop's Fables
Overall, the children liked reading the older, 1964, edition more.
I asked why, and a nine-year old said, 
"The stories are shorter and give lessons with them."

These had amazingly beautiful illustrations.
The children enjoyed looking at the pictures in the 
newer versions of Aesop's Fables.
