Fables are short stories that usually have talking animals as the main characters, which aim to teach kids a moral lesson. Aesop’s Fables are quite famous and include such recognizable tales as The Boy Who Cried Wolf, teaching us to tell the truth, and The Tortoise and the Hare, which teaches us about having patience! Aesop’s fables are some of the earliest (and longest lasting) examples of oral storytelling, and they are told and retold to this day!
