Aesop’s Fables – Free Book, Free App

In our daily biography a few days ago we learned about Aesop, a Greek slave and story teller who is said to have lived 620-565 BC. Each fable contains a cautionary, ageless moral. And just in time for us, the Library of Congress released Aesop’s Fables Interactive Book. When you click on the link you can either read the fables on your computer or you can get the app for your iPhone, iPad or android.

There are over 140 fables there including the Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing (pictured above) and the Town Mouse and the Country Mouse (pictured below).

I also enjoyed reading through the Library of Congress online exhibition they put together of the “Books That Shaped America.” The exhibition ends Sept. 29, 2012.
