A good book to read to ages 4 and up. However, if you want your child to read one side as you read the other (the way the book is meant to be read), your child should be in at least 2nd grade in order to have developed the necessary reading skills.

Gr 1-3-In this series installment, Aesop's fables are offered up in a rhyming call-and-response format. Text fonts are in different colors to highlight the parts for two readers and turn the stories into interactive experiences. These simplified versions of the familiar tales are told with gentle humor, and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations bring personality and life to the animal characters. The fox in a three-piece suit is particularly charming. As each story ends with a moral (in magenta) to be read aloud in unison, the book also offers a way for children to build reading comprehension. This collection is a theatrical take on Aesop's stories and a solid pick for most picture-book collections.-Sarah Townsend, Norfolk Public Library, VA (c) Copyright 2011.
