The Tortoise and the Hare [Perseverance makes anything possible and don't boast] The Friends and the Bear [Friends are there when you need them most] The Crow and the Pitcher [Problems are solved by thinking and working hard] Three of Aesop's fables are told from the perspective of a child observing the world and learning from it. In this truly unique series, Aesop is that child. He comes to life as an inquisitive, confident young raccoon who goes on a daily adventure and experiences each fable as it unfolds. Aesops grandmother encourages him to go on these adventures so that he may find the answer to his many questions. Upon his return Aesop shares what he has learned with his grandmother who validates his conclusions. One of the most powerful forms of learning occurs through real life experience and self motivation. Learning begins with curiosity and succeeds only with perseverance. Unfortunately, as children grow, their curiosity and freedom of expression wanes. This book endeavors to strengthen a childs unbounded curiosity so that they feel empowered and never stop asking why.
