12 stories inspired by Aesop's Fables, in English and French

Age Seven Onward

In the last chapter of both volumes are dialogues taken from the stories which can become a performance. Interactive reading greatly improves reading skills.

On the AESOP site are theatre exercises and simple solutions for a play.

  Aesop's fables were assembled after his death and survived two and a half millennium through wars, censorship and natural disasters. During this long period they were translated and adapted to the cultures of Europe and the Middle East. They were popular during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance in Europe notwithstanding a ban on non-religious subjects by the Church. The most well known adaptation of Aesop's Fables is Fables Choisies: by the poet Jean de la Fontaine, in the 17th century. 

Quatorze histoires en deux volumes inspirées par les fables d’Esope. Esope était avant tout un homme bien intégré dans la politique d’Athènes (700 avant JC) et utilisait les animaux dans ses histoires pour passer ses idées sans être offensif. 

La traduction en anglais est fidèle. Ça aide beaucoup dans l’apprentissage d’une langue, d’avoir déjà en tête l’histoire.
