Aesop's Fables; Timeless Moral Stories
  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 3
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

A hungry heron spends all day looking for the perfect meal--bypassing all sorts of perfectly fine food in the process. The heron is so choosy that the sun soon sets, and he is forced to eat only a small snail. Additional features include pages defining fables and morals, an introduction to Aesop, a Think-About-It section, activities for further learning, and an introduction to both the author and illustrator.

Author: Mary Berendes

Mary Berendes has authored several books for children, including nature titles as well as books about various countries and holidays.
