In this 30th issue of the Baba Indaba's Children's Stories series, Baba Indaba, ever wanting to teach his children, narrates two more Æsop's Fables. The first is the fable about "the Old Lion and the Jackal" and the second is "Mercury and the Woodsman"



In the first fable the old lion, with dinner on his mind, lies in his cave and tempts the jackal to come closer. But is the jackal too wise for the crafty old lion?

In the second, the Roman god Mercury tempts a poor woodsman with gifts of gold. Does the woodsman's relative poverty win over the need to be cautious?

As always, with all Æsop's Fables there is a moral to each story told. You're invited to download and read these stories to find out what the moral to each tale is.



Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".



Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story. HINT - use Google maps.
