Some confusion on what to buy

I've heard many good things about your program, but sadly I don't know anyone locally who uses it, so I'm not sure which books to buy.

Do we only need the core Aesop book? Is the Instructor's Guide rally important, or only a nice to have? How much hardier is it to use with "Traditional Tales" vs the Workbook?

You only [b]need[b] the core book. However, unless you are a fan of designing your own lessons around your own models, we suggest using the student workbook and instructor's guide as well. The instructor's guide doesn't contain the student pages, so you would want to get both of them, rather than just one. Traditional Tales contains some suggested models, but there are no lesson plans included.

Does that help?
