Short Stories, Tall Tales: The Hare and the Tortoise
For ages 0 - 4 yrs-
In one of the most famous of Aesop's fables, a very cheeky and boastful Hare gloats that he's the fastest creature in the whole wood.
A tortoise sick of bickering on this topic volunteers to race him and Hare learns an important lesson.
Hannah Summers's inventive and energetic retelling follows the Hare and the Tortoise through, over and round the forest obstacles and working together, your little ones learn that it isn't all about who wins the chase, slow and steady wins the race.
Tortoise comes first, but so do we, as teamwork is worth more than first place to me.
