The moral of Aesop’s Fable (as retold by Reagan)

We’re learning more about the ancient Greeks this week in Tapestry of Grace. One of the books we are looking at is a collection of Aesop’s Fables. I explained to Reagan that a fable is a story that has a moral, or some sort of social truth, in it.

One of the fables we read was The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs. In this fable a couple has a goose that lays golden eggs for them. They surmise that the whole inside of the goose is golden and, being greedy, want all the gold immediately. They kill the goose and examine its insides to find out it was just like any other goose.

Aesop’s moral: “Much wants more and loses all.”

Reagan’s moral: “You shouldn’t kill something just to look inside it. You should get on the computer and look on the internet first.”

She indeed is a 21st century girl.
