Aesop's Animated Fables Series

Aesop's Animated Fables Series

"Highly Recommended. These programs are a fun and appealing introduction to Aesop. They are reminiscent of the classic 'Sesame Street' cartoons, as is the cheeky sense of humor displayed in the animation. Kids will enjoy these tales as the characters are brought to life through myriad visual details." -School Library Journal
The ageless wisdom of Aesop's Fables has helped children learn and enhance their living experience for centuries. Dating back to the 6th century, the fables are considered to be some of the most beautiful tales ever told. Part of their charm is in the use of animals and objects as part of the narrative that contains a hidden message or moral for humans. This series, which features 51 of Aesop's most beloved fables, uses the wonder of animation to help children better understand these important lessons of life. Each program offers 3 different fables. Co-produced by RTSI - Televisione svizzera and Frama Films SA. Series: 17 x 22-minute programs or 9 x 44-minute programs.
