Frog Fables and Parables

A fable is a very short story which is meant to illustrate a point or teach us a lesson. Usually, but not always, fables are stories about animals that talk like people. The lesson that a fable teaches us is called a moral.
A parable means something similar. It is usually short fictitious story that illustrates a moral attitude or a religious principle.

Many common sayings come from Aesop’s Fables: “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch,” and “Honesty is the best policy,” and “Look before you leap” are familiar examples. Aesop is believed to have been a Greek slave who made up these stories to make his life easier. Nobody is really sure if Aesop made up these fables. What is certain, however, is that the stories called Aesop's Fables are so wonderful that they have been told over and over again for thousands of years.
