Aesop's Fables

I'm reading Aesop's Fables and I am amazed at how many sayings that have become a part of our everyday lives have come from these stories.

Slow but steady wins the race.
Fairweather friends are not worth much.
Look before you leap.
Might makes right.
Birds of a feather flock together.

In one of the foonotes it said that some of the fables were written to refer to an intended event. That makes the Millie and Tilie stories fables, too. I've written before about how great Millie and Tillie stories are for letting your children know the consequences of their behavior before they misbehave!

Millie always tries to do the right thing - Tillie is always misbehaving.

I do have one Millie and Tillie story and you can find it on the right listed in the Most Popular Posts section
