Aesop’s Fables

Fables have long been a staple of childhood, perhaps because in addition to being entertaining they contain a moral we will carry with us into adulthood.  Often, whether or not we even realize we have incorporated that lesson into our lives, we find ourselves reminding others of the tale of the Tortoise and the Hare, or the Goose with the Golden Eggs.

Per Amazon:  Aesop’s Fables is a collection of stories credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BCE

Copies of Aesop’s Fables have been added to the CheerUp.Fun August eBook Club The first 100 people to join should automatically receive a copy.  For more information on how to join the CheerUp.Fun August 2017 eBook Club Click Here.

The Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault

For modern readers, Fairy Tales are something we grow up with, and in that respect take for granted.  They have always been a part of our lives, and in many ways are a part of our common culture.  Any child in American can strike up a conversation with almost any other child using Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, or any of a number of other characters that it seems as though every child in the country, regardless of their background, has grown up knowing.  Perhaps the only question is how they were introduced to those characters — was it in a picture book, a fairy tale book, through a movie or tv show?

Some may find it hard to believe that the characters they know and love can be found in stories written by someone who lived (and died) over 300 years ago.

As noted on Amazon: CHARLES PERRAULT (12 January 1628 – 16 May 1703) was a French author and member of the Académie Française. He laid the foundations for a new literary genre, the fairy tale, with his works derived from pre-existing folk tales. The best known of his tales include Le Petit Chaperon Rouge (Little Red Riding Hood), Cendrillon (Cinderella), Le Chat Botté (Puss in Boots), La Belle au bois Dormant (The Sleeping Beauty), and Barbe Bleue (Bluebeard). Some of Perrault’s versions of old stories may have influenced the German versions published by the Brothers Grimm more than 100 years later. The stories continue to be printed and have been adapted to opera, ballet (such as Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty), theatre, and film.
