Lion Fables

In Aesop's 'The Lion and the Mouse', a lion spares the life of a little mouse and soon learns that size is not everything. The proud lion in the Tibetan fable 'The Hare's Revenge' learns his lesson the hard way when the hare decides to put a stop to his bullying ways.

These fables offer young readers a captivating introduction to the fable tradition. Pairing Aesop's fables with those from other cultures, this book introduces readers to world literature and enables them to pick out moral themes common to many cultures. The fables have been chosen to provide ample scope for discussing moral and ethical questions and citizenship topics. The book also includes teaching notes and can be used for a wide range of cross-curricular activities, making these a wonderful addition to any classroom.
