Aesop's Fables: The Wind and the Sun
No Thumbnail Available
This is one of ten landscape pamphlets of 24 pages each that come in two five-pamphlet sets. This set is labeled as "Volume II." Texts offer rhyming verse, and there is a flap at the end of each pamphlet to cover the right-hand picture while a young reader tries to make out the words on the left-hand page. The fables are told in the present tense. The computer-generated graphics seem to match up well with the texts. In this version, the simple rhyming lines work well. The "bet" is accurately set up with "You can't get his coat off, I'm the only one who can!" The best two of the illustrations have contrasting expressions on the faces of wind and sun, just before the pamphlet's center and at the point where the man takes his coat off.
