Friday Fables

Grizzly Mama: Aesop's Fable Friday Grizzly Mama has been posting a fable every Friday. This week we get two.

Something happened to the state of education... do they teach fables anymore? I doubt it... Euclid was the standard geometry text for two millenia, suddenly in the 20th Century, he wasn't good enough anymore. Aesop being Greek, has probably been written off as a "dead white man."

As a home-school teacher, GM isn't bound by what the state-run schools do (Well, not too much. There are "standards" she has to meet, records she has to keep.) So she does get to teach fables. Go take a look. I think you will enjoy.
