The North Wind and the Sun: A Fable by Aesop

This is a short, animated retelling of the fable by Aesop. The sun shows the North wind that it’s easier to get people to do what you want by persuasion than by force. The illustrations are nice, and the music is unobjectionable. It’s a bit moralistic (as is the point of Aesop’s fables), but I remember loving these simple morals when I was a kid (and not understanding why my parents didn’t find them as convincing as I did!)
