    One thought on “Fables”

    1. I just ♡ Arnold Lobel's books and this is a fav. Anyone can enjoy it. My favorite fable in this book is The Pig and the Candy Store. 5*****

    2. This book was a quick read with a nice old writing style that is built up of a bunch of tiny little fables. The book was okay, but the book didn't pop out as the best book I have ever read. (Finished my genre graph)

    3. 1981 Caldecott MedalThis has 20 written and illustrated fables. Each fable contains a timeless moral that all children could benefit from. I think reading a fable or two at a time would work best, since the fables are sort of lengthy.

    4. Shades of Aesop done badly. Some of the lessons I don't think were valid lessons at all. But they weren't all that bad and I was willing to go along with this book up until "The Pelican and the Crane."Call me triggered, as I probably am. As a parent of autistic children I had a hard time with this Fable. I understand the sentiment - you don't have friends because you don't act right. Fine. But with an autistic child who doesn't understand how their behavior impacts others - this kind of lesson s [...]

    5. “Fables” is a book full of (guess) fables written by Arnold Lobel and is the winner of the prestigious Caldecott Medal. This book is full of Aesop-like fables about animals that are greedy, naughty, confident, and lucky and this book is surely to be an instant favorite for children who want to learn useful lessons in life. Arnold Lobel’s writing is witty and inventive as he narrates each fable with a wise and proper air, indicating that the main characters are of high class (which might ex [...]

    6. 1981 Caldecott Medal: Lovely pictures to illustrate each fable. We read two or three fables each day during Morning Time. The kids guessed at the moral for each fable, which was fun for them and entertaining for me.

    7. Fables by Arnold Lobel consists of 20 one page original fables with fresh morals that slyly, humorously poke human at human failings using animal characters.Each one page fable has a moral, written in italics, afterward. My favorite fables in the collection, with their morals, are:The Lobster and the Crab - Even the taking of small risks will add excitement to life.The Bear and the Crow - Moral: When the need is strong, there are some who will believe anything.The Pelican and the Crane - Moral: [...]

    8. SUMMARY: 'Short, original fables with fresh, unexpected morals poke subtle fun at human foibles through the antics of animals. . . . The droll illustrations, with tones blended to luminescent shading, are complete and humorous themselves.'REVIEW: Most of Arnold Lobel's books are geared to young children. Fables would be a great read aloud for older elementary students. Each story in and of itself would be a great discussion prompt and/or writing prompt. His illustrations as always are wonderful [...]

    9. There are sublime stories that teach gentle but important life lessons paired with Lobel's thoughtful and colorful artwork. what more could you ask for? 1981 Caldecott winner!

    10. These original animal fables are still as wonderful as I remember them; with short morals at the end, and attractive illustrations.

    11. 1. Book summary, in your own words (3 pts)Fables is a Caldecott Medal Book. It has 20 different fables with 20 different meanings. It is a very cute and funny book with beautiful pictures for each fable.2. Grade level, interest level, lexile (1 pt)This would be a book for 3rd-5th graders. It is a very funny book, just a little hard to read if you want to really understand the meaning behind each story.3. Appropriate classroom use (subject area) (1 pt)I would use this book to help teach about fab [...]

    12. I don't think I read this back in my Frog and Toad days, although some of the illustrations seem familiar. But they are so luminous and fun that they may have been reproduced somewhere else. I don't love the fables themselves quite as much -- I'd rather have a story -- but they are nice and sufficiently silly and tongue-in-cheek to not be preachy.

    13. A collection of fables by Arnold Lobel, similar to Aesop's in that they involve animals in human situations which call for wise decision making. Lobel's illustrations are what make these fables special, some I wish I could frame and put on my wall, especially one of a camel in ballerina shoes. My favorite fables were rather dark, including one about a trio of frogs who chase rainbows into a cave and are eaten by a snake. The moral was something like, 'some hopes end in disappointment.' Ha!

    14. Caldecott Winner 1981This has some truly funny fables. I love the one about the umbrella and the one about the misbehaving kangaroo. It is a fun way to talk with students about fables especially when paired with Squids will be Squids by Scieszka.

    15. This was a really unique children's book. Must be to win the Caldecott Medal.The stories are charming, and yet firm in their warnings. The illustraions are wonderfully added to enrich each fable.

    16. Summary: A collection of 20 Aesop's Fables, each with a beautiful illustration. The moral of each fable is printed on the page for the reader to consider. Evaluation: This collection contains a variety of traditional Aesop's Fables, each with a moral or possibly more than one moral of the story. The fables included in this collection are all child-friendly stories featuring animals with human characteristics. It is nice that the moral of the story is printed at the bottom of each fable for the p [...]

    17. I picked up a copy of this because I recognized the cover; I remember nothing about the content of the book, but I'm SURE I read it when I was little (3rd grade at most). It does have truly superb illustrations, and some of the fables are very good (my favorites are "The Hen and the Apple Tree" and "The Mouse at the Seashore"). Not all of the fables work--just skip the hippopotamus one--but overall, it's a solid collection. And I cannot overstate the quality of the artwork.I read this aloud to m [...]

    18. Wonderful. One man’s unusual but nevertheless wise observations on the behaviour of various characterful animals. Beautifully illustrated. Lobel described himself as cautious and apprehensive when it came to writing, not entirely consistent with the lessons to be learned from his fables, which give cause for hope - for those with courage and an appetite for life, albeit tempered by common sense and an understanding of human nature.

    19. This was very cute. At first I wondered if I might have missed some of Aesop's fables previously, but I believe all of these were new. They are all about a page long, so they could be used as a series of very short storytimes. The illustrations are cute, with several of them being funny as well. A few of the stories do have the fable tendency to end in disaster, but not as many as I was expecting. Overall, this one was fun.

    20. Fun book with unexpected and fresh moral that are taught by animals. Every Fable has a moral to it and it is complemented by a painting to get and idea of each fable. With 20 different fables I will use this in my future classroom to have group discussion. I want to ask my students what did they learn and what was the moral. I can read one by one everyday. It is an excellent learning guide.

    21. It was okayok us a long time to get through it, it’s pretty lengthy for a kids book! Good illustrations, enough to keep their attention even though I am certain most of the morals of the stories went above their heads. Several of the fables were pretty odd, or else a stretch to connect with their fable, yeah, not reading this one ever again.

    22. Reminiscent of Aesop's fables, brought to us by Arnold Lobel of "Frog and Toad" fame. The stories are short and to the point, each with a moral to instruct. Nothing truly groundbreaking, but interesting to see some of Lobel's other work.

    23. This is the 1981 Caldecott winner. They are nice fables (with animals as the main subjects). Each one-page fable/story has a moral to it.

    24. The pictures are rich with detail and relevance to the story. Great inference book for kids who do not know how to make inferences from pictures or text.

    25. The illustrations in this book are colorful, creative and imaginative. Each story only having one image makes the pictures that much more critical to show detail for the whole story.

    26. An apple in time saves before you leap.This is a strange book. It's not bad, but it kind of makes me wonder why he wrote this. I want to know the story behind this book.It's a little wordy to read to a young child. As the title suggests, it's a series of short fables, each less than one page long and illustrated by a full-page image on the facing page. Some of them are reasonable and similar to popular parables, but some of them are rather unusual. Most of them are very reminiscent of Aesop's fa [...]

    27. Title: Fables Author: Arnold LobelIllustrator: Arnold Lobel Genre: FablesTheme(s): risk taking, change, being yourself, Opening line/sentence: “A crocodile became increasingly fond of the wallpaper in his bedroom. He just stared at it for hours and hours.”Brief Book Summary: A collection of different home-spun fables, all with their own moral are presented in this book. Professional Recommendation/Review #1: (Bookbird Reviews) Without apologies to Aesop, La Fontaine, or Krylov- and without i [...]

    28. I know this is a Caldecott winner, but I enjoyed Lobel's original fables even more than his illustrations!
