Aesop’s Fables Copywork

Aesop’s fables copywork is full of wisdom from ancient times before Christ.

Each short fable tells a story that illustrates a particular life lesson. The animal characters are often personified with human characteristics which appeal to children.

Aesop’s Fables appear on many children’s reading lists because of their cultural relevance to western culture. They’re where many expressions, such as “sour grapes” and “slow and steady”, originate.

Even if you have read these to your children before they can still enjoy them again as they use them for their copywork.

This copywork is taken from Aesop’s Fables by George Fyler Townsend
