Aesop's Fables by: Jerry Pinkney - Traditional Literature

Jerry Pinkey retells these humerous and timeless fables. My favorite fable is The Fox and the Goat; I was able to act out this fable in the classroom, which was a blast, but I also like the message it is sending, Look Before You Leap. The gorgeous illustrations are brought to life by watercolors making this well-crafted book something special. His realistic and vibrant illustrations help enhance the stories; I did not want to miss the scenes of The Wolf, The Lion, and The Tortoise and the Hare in action on these large pages.
