Review: Aesop’s Fables

Aesop's Fables  Aesop’s Fables by Aesop
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Aesop’s Fables” by Aesop, but retold by Ann McGovern reiterated the moral lessons we have learned as we grown-up – “misery loves company,” “slow and steady wins the race,” “many things are easier said than done,” “evil wishes have evil consequences,” “freedom is too high a price to pay for revenge,” etc… Moreover, they were told in very clear, concise and simple words accompanied with illustrations thereby enabling the message to be that much more effective to the reader.

I recommend this book to those who are looking to refresh their minds with the fables of Aesop, and the moral lessons he conveyed through them. Personally, this book wasn’t a very enjoyable read for me, but I didn’t dislike it either. I used it as a refresher.

I give it 3 stars.
