My first look at fables / by Rosie Banks.

Banks, Rosie, 1978- (author.).


"The fables of Aesop are over 2,500 years old! Yet, we still recount them and ponder the lessons his animal characters deliver. Aesop isn't the only author of fables. Others have found fables to be an effective way to reflect on people's behaviors and suggest wiser ways of behaving. Readers of this beneficial and accessible book will learn more about this genre of literature and its writers. They'll examine the elements of fables and be invited to demonstrate their knowledge by writing their own"--WorldCat.
