Aesop's Fables: Books about Reading, Writing, and Thinking

Aesop's Fables: Books about Reading, Writing, and Thinking Series Cover

Aesop's Fables are timeless classics, and Royal Fireworks Press is pleased to offer them in a format that makes them easily accessible to young children. The fables—forty-four in all—are divided among four volumes, and each one includes not just the fables themselves but also important vocabulary and additional pages of activities for children to complete.

The activities, designed by Dr. Kathryn T. Hegeman, are varied and engaging, and they provide children with opportunities to think about the stories in different ways. They emphasize reading, writing, and thinking, as well as life skills, values, decision making, grammar, visual interpretation, and creative expression. Children draw pictures, color images, write sentences to answer questions, and complete fun activities, such as writing how many words they can make from another word, or filling in blanks to complete a story, or listing synonyms or antonyms, and more. The variety in the activities provides something for every child.

The reading level of the stories increases from 2.1 in Volume I to 4.3 in Volume IV. The laminated books measure 8-1/2 inches by 11 inches.

We also offer these books in a special dyslexia-friendly font that may make it easier for some children with reading disorders to read. Click here to view those books.

Read Cathy Duffy's review, in which she says: "These four delightful workbooks offer an approach to language arts for children that is more child-friendly than most workbooks."
