Dating back to the 6th century BC, Aesop's Fables tell universal truths through the use of simple allegories that are easily understood. Though almost nothing is known of Aesop himself, and some scholars question whether he existed at all, these stories stand as timeless classics known in almost every culture in the world. This is volume 1 of 12. (Summary by Chip)

Childhood memories


(5 stars)

Most of these were one way or another already told to me while in school(excluding some) ... Felt great reliving those days and learning something new in my early 20's.. And much appreciation towards all the readers all of them were sincere.. Hope to see more quality content in the future

decent


(3 stars)

the fables were excellent but some of the readers were unbearable. i had to skip a lot of the early fables due to poor microphones, being way too loud, or being too quiet even on max volume. this needs a second reading.

Aesop fables.

Pretty short and simple but I guess as I think back to my childhood they were always very very short.
