The Tortoise and the Hare
Slow and steady wins the race in this classic fable by Aesop and illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.
When Tortoise says to Hare, “I bet I can beat you in a running race!” all the animals laugh. Tortoise puts one foot in front of the next. Hare stops to nibble carrot tops and cabbages. . . . Who will have the last laugh?
Bernadette’s vibrant palette and thoughtful illustrations encourage readers to move at a tortoise’s pace to admire every detail.
