Aesop's Fables
(The New KISS Collection Point)

    Aesop's fables make great exercises for a variety of both grammar and writing assignments. Part of their interest is that there are many versions of the same fable. Over the years I have used some in this site, but I'm trying to keep better track of what I have used and where. In addition, in June of 2014, I collected numerous versions of "The Hare and the Tortoise." To keep this short, I'm going to try to make this page the central index to what is where.
