(4,323 Sterne; 280 Bewertungen)

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) (0 hr 45 min)

I wish that the morals were added at the end of each reading, but it was otherwise fantastic! Thanks, all!

(5 Sterne)

Very good lessons for primary school students to begin to navigate the real world.

whimsical and full of good morals

(5 Sterne)

I love it the narration was wonderful

Childhood memories

(5 Sterne)

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 Sterne)

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.

Deleted!

(2 Sterne)

This Libravox collection is like nails on a chalkboard! A chore to listen to, and WAY to many public domain disclaimers. Add that to reading these even short stories will put you to sleep... yuch!

timeless lessons

(4 Sterne)

Good set of timeless lessons. Easy fix for long intros: just fast forward to :28 or :30 (except to :18 for last 4).

Very old recording

(0 Sterne)

Sorry, this is a very old recording. We now have a much shorter disclaimer for projects with very short sections.
