Latin Via Fables: Simplified Fables: I'm now presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, in a SIMPLIFIED version (same story, but in simpler sentences) - with a SLIDESHOW presentation to go along with it, too. Today's Simplified fable is Fable 19: Vulpecula et Ciconia, the story of how the stork out-foxed the fox.

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE NUTRICE ET LUPO (the story of the wolf who overheard the nanny's words).
