Synopsis

You Read to Me, I'll Read to You Very Short Fables to Read Together by Mary Ann Hoberman, Michael Emberley

Mary Ann Hoberman and Michael Emberley have added Aesop's fables to their bestselling and award-winning series. Rediscover familiar tales and find new favourites in this delightful collection - these are fables as you've never seen them before! Aesop's fables are perennial favorites with parents, teachers, librarians, and kids alike, and this collection includes both beloved tales such as 'The Ant and the Grasshopper' and 'The Lion and the Mouse', as well as less familiar but equally charming stories like 'The Peacock and the Crane'. While there are many other editions of Aesop's fables, most include the traditional text and either focus on a single story or include hundreds of fables. Mary Ann's rhyming text coupled with Michael's lively art offers a more approachable and kid-friendly retelling of each tale, and fables are a perfect fit for the YRTM format.

Reviews

- A Chicago Public Library 2010 Best of the Best Children's poet laureate Hoberman is really the master of unforced rhyme ... and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are as consistently spry as the poems. -- The Horn Book

Repeats the earlier books

...All are retold simply and engagingly and are illustrated with lively spot illustrations. -- Booklist

The familiar tales are told with gentle humor, and Emberley's pencil-and-watercolor illustrations bring personality and life to the animal characters...a solid pick for most picture-book collections. -- School Library Journal
