Fables have always shown us the fundamental truths of human nature. This new dual-language series from Mantra Lingua is a fantastic way to explore the rich diversity of fables from different cultures.
Each book consists of two fables - one from Aesop and the other from another culture.
In Aesop's 'The Fox and the Crane', Fox invites Crane to tea but only gives her a flat dish. When it is Crane's turn to invite Fox which dish will she use?
In the Chinese fable 'King of the Forest' can the cunning Fox outsmart Tiger to save his life?
Each edition is beautifully illustrated with lively read-aloud text in both languages on each page.
Teacher's notes for both fables are included for further class activities covering different areas of the curriculum.
