This weeks book is a 1952 Rand McNally edition of Aesop's Fables. The inscription inside reads "To Tommy from Sharon and Linda Hammer 4-27-1953. I chuckle at the thought of this going to a boy with all the morals tucked in its pages.
The inside book cover pages always reveal the coming stories.
I would love to watch the artist render these sweet illustrations.
Illustrations by Anne Sellers Leaf.
The Fox and the Grapes
(one that I am not familiar with)
The Ants and the Grasshopper
I love the italicized moral below the fable.
Always stop to think whether your fun may not be the cause of another's unhappiness.
Cutest wolf in sheep's clothing ever.
Gentleness and kind persuasion win where force and bluster fail.
Meet me over at Corey's for this weeks...
