Bird experiment shows Aesop's fable may be true....I went through this Yahoo! news headlines and it brought me back to my younger years, reading my first Aesop's Fables book ; a gift from my sister when I was 11.
Aesop (from the Greek Αἴσωπος — Aisopos), famous for his fables, was a slave who lived mid-fifth century BC, in Ancient Greece.
I reminisce reading Aesop's Fables as one of my favourite books when I was a kid. So I was interested when I read the new study by British researchers that verifies the scenario in The Crow and the Pitcher. It's a tale of a thirsty crow finds a pitcher, but can't reach the water at the bottom. So it drops stones into the pitcher, gradually raising the water level. The moral: Necessity is the mother of invention. (Or, Little by little does the trick.)
I believe that kids still can read Aesop's Fables today because the tales remain relevant. To me, I still remember reading each story and taking in what they meant, remembering their morals that was illustrated with one line underneath the picture:
Aesop's Fables brings me back to the lovely memories and curiosity of my childhood.It's just simply amazing!
