This is an anthology of moral stories (mostly fables and parables). Fables are animal stories while parables are human stories. Both of them teach moral lessons. They are very short and straight to keep the attention of the audience, while entertaining and educating. Educational Psychology teaches that storytelling is very important pedagogy for making lasting impressions on people. Coupled with lessons in the fables and parables are other moral tip-bits.

It is hoped that the users of this book, preachers and teachers (in formal and informal education), will find it useful for preaching and teaching; by so doing, leaving their audience with abiding messages to take home.
