Pre/K Story Time Books (4.16.13)

Today we learned some valuable life lessons from Aesop, including:
  • A little common sense is often of more value than much cunning
  • Perseverance is surer than swiftness
  • No one is too weak to do good
  • Much wants more and loses all
  • He who listens to flattery is not wise, for it has no good purpose
and, my favorite,
  • Persuasion is better than force
The Very Best of Aesop's Fables

We also colored pictures of some of fox's mishaps from the fables, and ate delicious grapes (that were easily reachable and not the least bit sour; sorry, fox).
