    Arnold Lobel has written his own fables one page stories in this collection There is a lesson in each one and the lessons are written at the bottom of the page for each story This is a long book that is a lot to read in one setting but better spread over a few nights The artwork is lovely and focuses on the heart of the story I enjoyed many of theseThe kids thought some of these were funny and some of the stories were boring The nephew loved the pelican who is a mess at dinner My nephew is so messy He was the messiest eater as a child He still can make a mess but he is better now I don't think he got the point of the story No one would invite the pelican over because he was so messy I think the nephew missed that important point There were several stories he liked in here 3 frogs were eaten and he loved that This was a 4 star book for himThe niece enjoyed the story about a Rhinoceros out shopping for a new dress She is all gussied up and looks silly The lesson at the bottom says’Nothing is harder to resist than a bit of flattery’ She understood the story and she thought it was funny too She gave this collection 3 stars

    35 stars Arnold Lobel most famous for his Frog and Toad series has also written a series of fables centered around lively animals whimsical moments and crazy situationsFor the most part I really enjoyed it There's only 48 pages but wow he certainly crammed a LOT of content in there Twenty stories and plenty of full color illustrations really make this book memorableI loved all of the animals from crocodiles to ducks to baboons to elephants so much varietyThe stories were fairly good I do wish there was in terms of content so many of them were so short that I was just left wishing for but I suppose that's a good thing in the endYouTube | Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Snapchat mirandareads Happy Reading

    This book was a uick read with a nice old writing style that is built up of a bunch of tiny little fables The book was okay but the book didn't pop out as the best book I have ever read Finished my genre graph

    1981 Caldecott MedalThis has 20 written and illustrated fables Each fable contains a timeless moral that all children could benefit from I think reading a fable or two at a time would work best since the fables are sort of lengthy

    SUMMARY 'Short original fables with fresh unexpected morals poke subtle fun at human foibles through the antics of animals The droll illustrations with tones blended to luminescent shading are complete and humorous themselves'REVIEW Most of Arnold Lobel's books are geared to young children Fables would be a great read aloud for older elementary students Each story in and of itself would be a great discussion prompt andor writing prompt His illustrations as always are wonderful and even they could be used as great writing prompts for students to develop their own fable The original fables held many great moralsFAVORITE UOTES The highest hopes may lead to the greatest disappointmentsLove can be its own reward

    own 1981 Caldecott Medal Lovely pictures to illustrate each fable We read two or three fables each day during Morning Time The kids guessed at the moral for each fable which was fun for them and entertaining for me
