Plot twist in the forest! Drama in the barnyard! With beautiful shadow theater, Little Fables turns kids on to the classics of Aesop and La Fontaine, such as The Lion and the Mouse and The Tortoise and the Hare. In each episode, animals face a problem that young children readily relate to such as, “What if I am the smallest kid on the block?” The animals come up with options and solve their problems together, in ways that convey pro-social messages easily understood by children aged 3 to 5.
