The Tortoise And The Hare

The Tortoise and the HareAs the animals are having a picnic in a meadow, the Tortoise says to the Hare, “I bet I can beat you in a running race!”  Despite everyone’s laughter, the Hare accepts the challenge. This favorite classic about how “slow and steady wins the race” is retold in this book’s wondrous artwork. The illustrations of the woodland creatures and stunning landscape were created using  ink drawings with soft watercolor washes. Intricately detailed illustrations make this book excellent for one-on-one reading. ema
