The Aesop for Children...

I'm reading The Aesop for Children this year to Ruben.  We are focusing on narration.  I read one page three days per week.  He narrates after each fable.  So if there's three fables on a page, he narrates three times.  This is working well.  The fables are short so they keep his attention.  He enjoys the stories.  His ability to narrate is improving.  Often times he's able to capture the moral in his narration.  I give him this opportunity before I read the moral at the end. The Aesop for Children is a great book for beginning narrators and Milo Winter's illustrations give an added level of beauty.
