I love this CD and so does my 8 year old Jul 1, 2008
We are listening to this while driving around town. The brief stories are perfect for those "running errand days" when we are in and out of the van.
I absolutely love the language, and so does my 8 year old son. My 7 year old son likes some of them, but is disinterested in others. I love the narrator's voice, and the music between stories is beautiful!
The annunciation of the individual fable titles could be better, though. Perhaps the music is too loud at that point.
Not what I was Wanting Nov 27, 2003
I bought this on cassette to entertain my 4-year-old during our 30-minute ride to school in the mornings. It was a complete failure, but to be fair the fault is probably my own ignorance of Aesop's Fables. The stories are VERY brief-- just enough to set up the moral at the end, not enough to set up any drama or catch my 4-year-old's interest. The morals themselves are worded in old-fashioned and/or very sophisticated language and are pretty much incomprehensible to this age child. I could perhaps see having this in book format and reading one or two stories at bed time, but for my needs the cassette at least is pretty useless. We'll be going back to the Jim Weiss stories on tape (which we've quite enjoyed).
