A fable is a very short story that tells us how to behave or that teaches us a lesson. Usually, but not always, fables are stories about animals that talk like people. The lesson that a fable teaches us is called a moral. They are applicable to both children and adults and just because they seem simple at first glance their depth of meaning can surprise you.

Aesop is believed to have been a Greek slave who made up these stories to make his life easier. Nobody is really sure if Aesop made up these fables. What is certain,however, is that the stories called Aesop’s Fables are so wonderful that they have been told over and over again for thousands of years.

Many common sayings come from Aesop’s Fables:

“Don’t count your chickens before they hatch,”
“Honesty is the best policy,”
and “Look before you leap”

are familiar examples.Whether a Greek slave named Aesop made up these stories or whether many people living at different times made up the stories is not important. What’s important is that the stories have survived and are worth re-telling. Most are very short, no more then a page or less and the audios are short but we thought they would be a nice light touch to the site, enjoy.
