6 Best Free Sites On Aesop's Fables For Kids To Listen, Read And Watch Online


Aesop's Fables are excellent stories to tell little ones as they are usually short, contain a moral about life and involves animals. Here are 6 best free online sites where you can find Aesop's Fables For Kids To Listen, Read And Watch. You will find famous stories like the Lion and the Mouse, The Ant and the Grasshopper, The Town Mouse and The Country Mouse as well as other not so common ones which are a gem to find and read.

1. Watch this Youtube Playlist. It is by HooplaKidz and it contains 46 Aesop's Fables in the playlist. Here's the first.



2. Aesop's Fables By Aesop on Project Gutenberg. On project Gutenberg, you will find over 50,000 ebooks free of charge. The original Aesop's Fables by Aesop is one of them. You can choose to read this on your desktop by clicking on the html version or download an epub version for your smart phones or tablet pcs or get the kindle version for those in the US.

3. If you like audio stories, then your child can have Aesop's fables read to them at Storynory. You won't find a long list of Aesop's fables here. However, you should take note that Storynory is an excellent site for audio stories, you can browse through the site for 100s of audio stories.

4. What I like about Aesopfables.com is the way they list the Aesop's Fables. You can easily go down the list and read the story with the moral that  you want to highlight to your child because the moral of the story is listed right next to the title. You will find a total of 640 fables to choose from in all.

5. For those who wish to add a lesson after reading the fables, here is a site that includes a fables glossary as well as quizzes for the Aesop's Fables featured on the site. This is good for improving vocabulary and testing comprehension so besides teaching kids about good morals, you can turn it into a mini English lesson. You can make it more educational by asking them questions after they have read the moral stories. Here is the url to the site. http://www.mcwdn.org/fables/fabindex.html

6. Tales With Morals tells kids about the famed story teller Aesop himself on its page including facts about Aesop like "When was Aesop born?", "Who is Aesop and what did he look like?"The fables listed there comes with images and each page is printable. You can print them out to read or make them into a book for your child.
