Pear Apples

“You call them what exactly?” -Ellie

“Pear apples. Like a pear and an apple. A pear apple.” -Julie

“Interesting. I call them apple pears. That’s what I’ve always called them.” -Ellie

“Huh, well, cool. I grew up calling them pear apples. Ha! That rhymes with parables.” -Julie

“What’s a parable? -Dan

“It’s like a story. With a moral or a message.” -Julie

“So it’s like a fable?” -Dan

“I guess so? What’s the difference between a parable and a fable? Are they the same?” -Julie

“I’ll look it up…” -Ellie

Our findings:

Fable: Characters = animals. Teaches moral and ethical lessons.

Parable: Characters = people. Teaches moral and ethical lessons. Can have spiritual components.

Remember listening to Aesop’s fables as a kid?
