Virtual Story Time: Aesop’s Fables
Monday, December 14th, 2020—There may be a lesson or two in this Virtual Story Time with News Channel 9’s Dan Cummings. Today, Dan read some of his favorite Aesop’s Fables to the 2nd grade Atoms. Before we settle in for this story time, let’s take a look at the history behind these well known short stories or fables.
Aesop’s Fables are a collection of short stories that were designed to teach moral lessons. These fables are credited to a Greek story-teller named Aesop who may have lived around or between 620 and 560 BCE. These fables are well known and have been translated into a variety of languages. Some of the fables are popular in many cultures and have been made into animated cartoon versions and are inspiration to some architecture.
Thank you Dan for taking the time to share these historic fables with the Atoms. To listen to this Virtual Story Time of Aesop’s Fables, please click here.
