Abstract
This is a manual for educators from preschool to junior high school. It contains pages that may be reproduced. Sections are devoted to various age levels. A good group of starting fables is identified on 10 for preschool and kindergarten, including TH, CP, TMCM, LM, and BW. For primary grades, Meier recommends approaching fables as studies of character, with fables like AD, WS, GGE, DS, as well as those recommended for preschool children. In the middle elementary grades, she recommends contrasting the themes of fables with those of scriptural parables. Upper elementary grades are a time to reflect on liberty and on union and unity. In junior high school, it is time to reflect on "Aesop's Fables in the Christian and Pagan Ideas of Man and Government Revealed Through Literature." Her history of fables tends to be sketchy and not up-to-date. As will be clear, she makes free use of and shows respect for sacred scripture. Plastic bound. The few illustrations seem to be copyright free material from the internet. There are lesson plans, charts, and suitable fable texts.
