Excerpt from The Book of Fables: Chiefly From Aesop
In the first place, the fable is short. The child has the pleasure of reading an entire story at one sitting. Then it is of animals, and animals are? The natural companions of the child. 'again, it is) interesting and novel; it appeals to his imagina-f tion, for it represents the animal as having hu man properties; and it suggests a plain moral. Itl is true, the morality of the fable is usually a pin-3 dential one, but prudence is a virtue which comes.' early in the lessons of life. We may rest with confidence in the worth of stories which have beenf tested by, generations and centuries of use.'
