What is a fable? The “American Heritage Dictionary” defines “fable” as, “A usually short narrative making an edifying or cautionary point and often employing as characters animals that speak and act as human beings.” At KidsFables.com all types of allegorical and fictitious people and animals may be used to tell a fable.

If published, your fable will include your by-line with your first name, age, and home town. Your fable will remain your property. Kids are invited to submit fables for consideration. KidsFables.com is where creative kids may have their fables published.
Rules To Learn Before Submitting Your Fable
Hi Kids! If you want your fables published on KidsFables, please insert spaces between sentences, start sentences with capital letters, and divide your fable into paragraphs. You may choose to text on your mobile device using bad grammar, but you may not write fables for KidsFables using that style. Responsible teachers and parents will discourage such errors.
You can search to find a fable written by you or a friend. You can search for fables on any subject. You can search for fables with any animals or characters. You can search for a fable written by someone you know or someone from any country. Please enter a word or two from the title, your name, an author’s name, or any location.
Please limit the number of fables submitted by your class to eight. Responsible teachers run contests to select the best fables; others set up collaborative teams to write fables that are then submitted with each team member’s name.
