The first fable I remember my parents telling me as a child was “The Tortoise and the Hare”, so this prompted me to decide to do my first Web Form on Aesop. This website ended up getting a 9/10 only because I couldn’t find out when it was updated last. This site has a little about Aesop’s life, even though not much was known about it. It also has a list of his fables. I think it’s a decent website, because it has a list of all the fables Aesop wrote (that is known to us) and it also has a brief history of his life. On this particular website, it has the fables then has an area which you can type in the moral you believe is being told in the story. On this site, it also has a hyperlink to another site, which has the fables broken down into different sections. Its broken down by the time period that he wrote them, since most of the morals tended to coincide with one another. That hyperlink is http://www.worldwideschool.org/library/books/socl/customsetiquettefolklore/AesopsFables/toc.html I believe that the hyperlinked website is better and offers more credible information, but unfortunately I didn’t open that website first, so I couldn’t use it as my Web Form. Surprisingly enough, I didn’t find any typos on either website, but I still don’t consider the first to be very scholarly. Overall, I enjoyed both websites and would use them in a future classroom, to have the fables easily accessible.
