With bright photographs and illustrations, this volume explains the concept of a fable—defining the genre, detailing its characteristics, and reproducing some of the most famous examples of these stories from cultures around the world. Included in the Common Core Reading standards, the fable is an irrefutably fundamental genre that allows young readers to learn universal morals by using animals to teach them important lessons. After learning all about fables, a hands-on, guided activity at the end helps readers go through the steps necessary to write their very own.
