This is our final book. This was also the first book we ever checked out of the library. We walked in, got our library cards and walked out with one, solitary book. It was Aesop's Fables~ Illustrated by Jerry Pinkney.
We all fell madly in love. The girls begged for story after story. The pictures were so vivid and beautiful and the fables were so clear in getting their point across that my girls could tell me the moral of the story almost every time without being told.
Havilah's particular favorite was "The Stag and His Reflection". This could be due to the fact that I was in a rather silly mood while reading it. For days someone would randomly burst out in their silliest voice, " But my LEGS!!! How THIN and UGLY they look! I'm embarrassed to be SEEN!".
This book is missing it's cover, but other than that it is in perfect condition. There are 61 fables in this book! Your children (or grandchildren, nieces, nephews......) are sure to love this one for many, many years!
Leave a comment and I will draw a winner soon!
