New Illustrations for Aesop's Fables #holidaygiftguide

I hate to admit it, but I was sort of unfamiliar with Aesop's Fables.  Yes, I had heard of them, but other than that, I was none the wiser...
Then, we received a beautiful book in the mail!
Since the mid 1980's, Charles Santore has been working on illustrating children's books.  Lucky for us, he worked on Aesop's Fables!!
He arranged the tales based on each animal... and the tales and illustration are great!!!
This book includes 24 of the famous tales...
With probably the most famous of all... The Hare and the Tortoise...
Add to it, that particular illustration is a pull out spread!!!!!
If you are looking to add to your family library, I guarantee you will be impressed with the illustrations... and might realize you are familiar with more of Aesop's Fables than you give yourself credit for!!!
