An evergreen book full of wisdom
If you are looking for a wonderful book of fables for your children, or even looking for a book that would make your child wise and prudent, then you must not skip Aesop's Fables. Aesop's fables are just right for your children because they contain the wisdom that has been collected since time immemorial.
For those who would like to know more, Aesop was a Greek slave, whose wisdom is reflected in the fables that are popular till now. Not much is know about the time in which he lived, but many of the stories called Aesop's fables are attributed to other sources as well. He was born most probably in 620 BC and he was a slave by birth.
Almost all his stories end with a moral, telling us the difference between right and wrong and the lessons learnt from the short incidents that are mentioned in the fables. During one of his missions as an ambassador to one of the Greek Republics called Delphi, he was killed in a manner not befitting his status as an ambassador.
However his stories still uphold the principles of truth and they are certainly a great read for younger children and a wonderful addition to your existing treasure of books in your personal or domestic library.
