Note: To start reading the fables, click on the Fables tab above!
Have you ever read the fables of Aesop (“Aesop’s Fables”)? Ever read Hans Christian Anderson, or the Grimm’s Fairytales? As time has gone on, I’ve found that more and more Americans are graduating high school without having read these foundational stories.
The purpose of this website is to make the fables accessible, both in print, and in audio format. Like Bugs Bunny cartoons, Aesop’s fables were written with animals as the main characters, while the stories actually convey adult concepts. Aesop originally told these stories in legal proceedings in his time, which was BCE. The stories were handed down and told to children to instill the basic concepts of civilization.
My concern is that without a population that has heard these stories and understands them, the fabric of our society could be in jeopardy.
If you haven’t read the fables, and society or the world around you seems puzzling or incomprehensible, perhaps you’ve just found the reason why.
If you’ve never experienced these stories, then this website is for you. If you were exposed to them a long time ago, then this website is for you. If you would like a little adult humour, then this website is for you. If you’d lilke to educate your children, then this website is for you.
This website works like a familar blog, so you can leave comments on the fables, stories, or other posts. Why not register to this site (it’s free!) so you can leave comments more easily, and have full access to what’s available?
