There is something to be said for teaching everything to somebody, as compared with the modern notion of teaching nothing, and the same sort of nothing, to everybody. — G. K. Chesterton

Aesop for Children - Milo Winter



This beautifully illustrated version of Aesop's fables is one of the most popular renditions of Aesop's Fables ever published. It is just as delightful for adults and older children as it is for beginning readers, and like much of the other literature that descends to us from Ancient Greece, reminds us of the sophisticated wisdom of the classical sages. The illustrations are exceptional and make these delightful stories even more memorable.
