Love reading to my 3 year old
As a mom, I am always looking for moral-sound books for my daughter. Aesop's Fables meets that standard and also allows me to introduce her to a beloved classic from my childhood without worrying about it being too heavy for her. This book is wonderfully illustrated and has a discussion question selection in the back of the book that has sparked many an excellent conversation. Highly recommend it to moms looking for a classic for their kids!
My kids love the illustrations of all the different animals and the poetry is easy and fun. The animated book that comes with scanning the QR code is incredible too. I've never seen this classic done like this!
