Count Your Way through Greece
This book counts to ten in Greek and highlights an element of Greek culture on a two-page spread for each of the numbers. "Ten" here is devoted to Aesop. The two pages illustrate ten animals featured in Aesop's fables. Behind them all, a Black Aesop sits with two listeners on a bench. It's fun to pick out the fables suggested by the animals. The fox sits beneath a vine laden with grapes. A stork puts his beak down a tall vase. A dog holds a piece of meat above a puddle. The write-up features TH as a sample story of Aesop. He gets around!
