Reading Fables and Folktales Resources

Children have vivid and wild imaginations, which is why the Learning Library’s folktales and fables resources make for captivating lessons and reading material. Kids get swept up in Norse mythology reading about the hammer-wielding god of thunder, Thor, or learn morals through Aesop’s famous fables like “The Tortoise and The Hare” and “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” The resource center's worksheets, lessons and activities on tall tales and famous fantasies inspire creativity, imagery and inventiveness.
