This week the Library of Congress announced the release of “Words to the Wise: Aesop’s Fables Interactive Book”, a free app for use on iPhones, iPads, and Android platforms. The e-book, was adapted from “Aesop for Children” with pictures by Milo Winter (1919).
You will find all of the classic Aesop tales such as The Lion and the Mouse there. Read the story and click on the picture to watch the mouse chew through the rope to release the lion. In my opinion the mobile app needs work. It is difficult to read the grey text on the small screen. And the text doesn’t format to fill the screen. I enjoyed reading and playing with the e-book online on my cellphone more than the mobile app.
Head over to Read.gov if you want to download the app or read the e-book online. It is not available in the Android app store and you will have to allow permission from unknown sources in order to download it. IPhone/iPad users let us know about your experience.
