Aesop’s Fables

I have an admiration of Aesop’s Fables, and I believe that they would make a great reference for Christian households as they raise their children.

Why the admiration? Mainly, because the fables teach quite a lot of common sense lessons to children, and common sense isn’t so common anymore. Several famous lessons, like

  • The Ant and the Grasshopper,
  • Androcles,
  • Belling the Cat,
  • The Dog in the Manger,
  • and the Fox and the Grapes

can be found here – but many less well known fables, like

  • The Dog and the Wolf,
  • the Ass and the Lapdog,
  • The Cock and the Jewel,
  • and the Bat, the Birds, and the Beasts

are also here to entertain and educate children.

Something that helps to connect the children with the heritage of the West, while giving them a far more useful and powerful set of morals than most kids will ever get in any school, is a valuable jewel that we should be sure to provide for our own!
