Aesop Fables for Kids

Aesop Fables for kids make moral storytelling fun and interesting while providing numerous lessons. These stories are short, sweet and poetic and have been told and retold. Many of the fables feature animals with human characteristics and simplified moral consequences.

William Caxton released the first Aesop Fable version in English in 1484. The stories were used in reference by biblical and moral figures for adults but John Locke may have been the first to focus Aesop teachings to children in 1693 saying the fables are…“apt to delight and entertain a child. . . yet afford useful reflection to a grown man”.

Stay tuned for a growing list of fables which may include but are not limited to the following. If you would like to see a story featured, let us know and you may see it soon!
