The Hare And The Tortoise by Helen Ward

4+ stars. Loved this retelling!!! The story is told simply but, oh, with such flavor! I couldnt stand the hare from page one!!! What a pompous, careless, self-centered little creature. (Possibly adults get a little more out of the story, knowing how such individuals really do run around and make havoc in our lives, haha!) The tortoise, on the other hand, doesnt make a stink about it--he simply goes along calmly with his own life, not getting upset, allowing the hare to build his own destiny (ah, again, such wise lessons for us all!) The illustrations are gorgeous--they are quite realistic and yet also charming. (At times, they reminded me a bit of Marjolian Bastins work.) Lots of creatures from all over the world gather to watch the race--even some obscure ones that kids will love meeting. The end of the book has a great educational segment identifying all the creatures and giving a little info on them.

The Tortoise and the Hare (Disney 1934)

I'll run you a race and prove it. The Hare was much amused at the idea of running a race with the Tortoise, but for the fun of the thing he agreed.

The Hare and the Tortoise

A Tortoise and Hare decide to race. The hare is so confident in the lead that he naps while the tortoise keeps going to win. Slow and steady wins the race. Aesop For Children. The Hare was much amused at the idea of running a race with the Tortoise, but for the fun of the thing he agreed.

There once was a speedy Hare who bragged about how fast he could run.
